Read and share the stories of our Tech Role Models

Tech is a great place to work, whatever your gender and whatever your professional interest. From coding to HR, from sales & marketing to project management, there are so many potential career paths available. In this space, we will share as many stories of women successfully carving their own paths and defining their own success and of all those who value working in diverse teams where capability and collaboration is what counts.

And if you're in tech, why not share your story too.
