Barclays commits to sponsoring a Chair in Maths or Physics for the next three years.
Barclays commits to hosting a series of events in 2014/15 to promote careers in technology to girls and expanding our Women in Technology network:
Barclays commits to hosting a 500-strong "Girls Allowed" conference this autumn targeted at girls aged 13-14.
Barclays will promote careers in its global technology centre by offering at least two girls-only events to schools in Cheshire as part of our outreach to young people over the next 12 months.
Barclays commits to continuing the promotion of its technical apprentices programme, with the aim of participating in events aimed at engaging young women in 2014/5. So far in 2014 we have attended over 10 events with an attendance of over 2000 people - we plan to continue engaging at this level.
Barclays commits to expanding its successful Women in Technology group to provide networking opportunities, mentoring and guidance to women in technology roles throughout the bank. A key upcoming event is a Wiki Edit-a-thon in June, a global event that that looks to increase the numbers of female editors, as women currently make up under 10% of Wikipedia editors.
