Creating the Tech Women Today Spotlight video series which seeks to recognise and celebrate women who are thriving in the world of technology was a huge priority for me. We just don’t see enough of these women in the media, so tech is still seen primarily as a man’s career.
But there’s so much more to it than that. People usually think of coding when you mention technology, but this is a very narrow view of this field of work.
A Tech City UK report from March 2018 revealed that only 13 per cent of females have a desire to work in the sector.
Yet technology impacts on every single area of our lives, from healthcare to fashion, from art to education and we just can’t live without it.
I have to thank GoCardless for believing in this vision and partnering with us to create this inspiring content! Furthermore, I cannot thank enough the amazing women in the TWT Spotlight videos series that share their challenges, accomplishments and perspectives. These women exemplify authenticity, integrity and leadership.
