Women in Tech?

Technology is a very male dominated industry. In 2023 74% of employees were male and within the field of AI where I spend most of my time, women still only account for around 22% of the workforce. Gender pay gaps are real and despite the many amazing initiatives out there, I still don't think we do a good enough job of inspiring young girls to excel in STEM subjects. In fact, at the current pace of change it will take over 130 YEARS until the economic gender gap is closed. [More stats here].

For the majority of my career my bosses (and their bosses) have been women. I've also coached more women than men over the last few years and in my experience, women are usually better storytellers. Some of that is biological and has to do with the higher levels of oxytocin that women have naturally, and generally speaking, that is often why women have a greater capacity for empathy; the most important skill for any communicator.

But despite that, whenever you see lists of "inspirational storytellers", tech leaders and keynote speakers, the examples are predominantly male. I've been as guilty of this as anyone. So, in December 2023 I set myself a challenge for 2024:

Watch one presentation from an impressive female tech leader EVERY DAY and post them on this page.

** Bookmark this page for whenever you feel like seeing an amazing storyteller you might not have heard before **

(I'll update this page every Sunday with each weeks content).
