In Part 2, Alina share’s insights on:

🌟A Career in Tech: We explore the key soft skills you can learn to take your career to the next level, improving your confidence and networking abilities along the way. Alina also shares some powerful advice for anyone wanting to establish or continue a career in tech and the importance of finding your purpose “You can be whatever you want to be!”

🌟Promoting an Inclusive Culture: As an immigrant, Alina knows first hand how challenging it can be to fit in and adjust to new cultures. Alina shares her journey of finding a sense of belonging, the challenges faced and some important tips on how you can better support your peers in creating an inclusive, welcoming environment. Empathy is key!

🌟Achieving 50/50 Gender Diversity: KPMG recently appointed the first ever woman, of Indian heritage to head KPMG UK in over 150 years and are proud to have an even gender diversity split on their board. Alina shares her thoughts on how this has been achieved and we explore initiatives such as ‘Raise You’ to support high performing, high potential women.

🌟Breaking Down Stereotypes: We discuss the importance of role models and companies being proactive in offering insight days for the younger generation to open their eyes to the amazing opportunities in tech — A career in tech doesn't necessarily mean just coding!

& so much more!
