Building a More Inclusive Technology Industry

Speaking at the Google Office
Speaking to Students at the Google London Office

Not all engineers are boring and not all geeks fit the stereotype, my passion is encouraging more people to pursue a career in technology. The technology industry is clearly not representative and this is evidenced by only 5% of tech leadership positions being held by women, 4% of the UK’s tech industry coming from a BAME background, and black founders only accounting for 1% of venture-funded startups.

It is easy to internalise these statistics in a way that inhibits us from success but I have made it my life mission to travel around the world encouraging more people to enter the technology industry, to not only build a more inclusive tech eco-system but to provide more checks and balances in the decision making processes.
