About Huxley's Women in Technology series

Over a year ago, Huxley had received a lot of requests from clients who are seeking for more female candidates that are equally strong as their male candidates. As such, we held various sessions that went from the challenges of recruiting female candidates to retention issues and now, covering the measure of success that companies have with their diversity initiatives. These events are held to provide a platform for dialogue, as well as for people to understand the true challenge of gender diversity, as well as the bigger diversity picture. Hopefully these sessions can help to drive change that can help to narrow any diversity gap.
