Ahead of International Women’s Day, Workspace are delighted to be hosting this ‘Tech for Women, by Women’ workshop alongside Women of Wearables. Join us for an evening to celebrate and highlight some of the amazing female founders building the next generation of tech products and services for women.
Women are still underrepresented in the UK’s technology workforce with only 24% of them working in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). According to a PwC UK research report, 78% of students can’t name a famous female working in tech.
But some women are pushing the frontiers of innovation in the tech industry, building companies and making products that change our lives for the better. So why aren’t we talking about them and their achievements more?
Tickets are free for Workspace customers to attend, simply use the code WORKSPACE at the checkout.

Karen Morton, Founder and Medical Director at Dr Morton's
Dr Karen Morton is the Founder and Medical Director at Dr Morton's - the medical helpline©. After years of dealing with a multitude of gynaecological issues over the phone, Karen concluded that medicine had been slow to embrace communication technology and was somewhat stuck in a past era where it was traditional for all patients to come and sit in front of the doctor when they have a problem. Women need for gynaecological reasons (contraception, period problems, fertility and pregnancy, then menopausal matters) to seek medical advice more than men and that is how the idea for Dr Morton was born. Today, Dr Morton’s is the only online women's health service with direct access to consultant gynaecologists as well as top GPs.
