WHAT DO YOU DO?

CEO

Let [the next generation] see how creative and exciting the industry is.

,,

Leading our company ShowX and building a global tech community.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?

I love how technology is ever changing and evolving, nothing sits still.

HOW DO YOU CELEBRATE WOMEN IN STEM?

We run Athena Hack https://youtu.be/yCY_tn6NYio, (UK's largest all women hack). I've done various talks online about how we inspire the younger girls of today to get into tech. https://www.linkedin.com/posts/showx_ta-global-gathering-activity-6684113593786531840-a1_k

WHAT DO YOU THINK SHOULD BE DONE TO ENCOURAGE MORE GENDER DIVERSITY WITHIN STEM?

Celebrate more women heroes in tech, put pressure on the media to do more, get more companies into schools and capture that 12-16 age bracket, let them see how creative and exciting the industry is.

BEST ADVICE FOR OTHER ADVOCATES?

Keep championing and also put pressure on the BBC and Netflix to do a Ada Lovelace dramatisation!
