More women for tech
UK pay TV operator Sky is repeating its Sky Tech Scholars initiative that gives women the opportunity to work on technology projects. Five women with a passion for STEM will be selected as ‘Sky Scholars’ and receive £25,000 in funding, plus access to Sky resources and mentors.
In the first iteration of the project some of the female entrepreneurs worked at Rolls Royce and Airbnb, and one, Kike Oniwinde, was recognised in the ‘2019 Forbes 30 under 30’ listing for founding the Black Young Professionals Networking app.
Applications are open until end-April to women of any age and across any field of technology, including software development, broadcast engineering, AI and machine learning and robotics.
