Building a More Inclusive Technology Industry
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.
