Be a talented individual not a ‘woman’ in STEM

Anna says: “I wrote this article as a reaction to a lot of negative mainstream press I was hearing about how difficult it is for women to thrive in tech environments. I found myself wanting to shout at the TV and radio that this was just so far removed from my personal experience of working in IT and the tech industry for nearly 30 years. I didn’t shout. I wrote about my personal positive experiences. I was so delighted to receive so many responses from former colleagues, clients and friends, male and female, about their own experiences and about how they hoped this might inspire their daughters”.
