Supporting women in broadcast technology

7 October 2021

Technology and engineering are critical to broadcasting, and drive innovation in this rapidly changing sector. However, in 2019 we reported that only 28% of broadcast technology and engineering roles were held by women. As the UK’s communications regulator, we are committed to a more diverse workforce, and want to help improve on this by raising awareness of the exciting career opportunities available.

In this session you will hear from inspiring women who have found different ways to develop their technical expertise within the broadcasting sector. We will also discuss the role that everyone can play in promoting greater diversity and supporting women in technical roles.

Confirmed speakers: Cristina Gomila, Managing Director of Content Technology & Innovation at Sky, Judy Parnall, Head of Standards & Industry at BBC, and Ranjeet Kaur, Head of Delivery at DTG Testing. The panel will also be joined by Graham Plumb, Director of Spectrum Planning and, Steph Barnett, Senior Broadcast Specialist, from Ofcom who will share their perspectives of working in broadcasting.

You can register for the event online.
