Workplace equality was top of the agenda at this year’s Dynamo conference, which took place on June 20 at the University of Sunderland.
The underplayed role of women in industry was outlined by keynote speaker, Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE, and echoed by fellow speaker Susan Bell, chief executive of Durham-based Waterstons.
Dynamo 19 – delivered by the industry-led initiative to connect and grow the North East’s tech sector – attracted around 300 delegates from IT and software companies, councils, specialist professional services, universities and colleges.
The event was hosted by BBC’s Charlie Charlton and also featured a number of breakout sessions and panel discussions that focused on cybersecurity, digital construction, gender balance and strengths and opportunities for the North East’s tech sector
