The Women in Technology Scholars programme is the latest grass roots initiative that Sky has launched to help encourage more women to pursue careers in technology. The scheme runs on a one-year rotation, with up to three scholars supported this year. The selection of female technology scholars will be based on those who have set their sights on realising their potential within the tech industry.
Their interest can be across any field of technology e.g. digital, innovation, AI, robotics, broadcast engineering, software development, etc, with relevance to the Media and Entertainment industry and relatable to Sky’s business.
