In this episode, we talk with Annette Allen, Development Team Leader at WellData, an IT company based in the UK.
Annette shares her journey to starting a career in IT, the challenges she has faced as well as the opportunities that working in IT brought to her.
We discuss the societal pressure put on girls when they consider a career in STEM, how this translates into low numbers of women in tech, and the negative effects of low degrees of gender diversity on business efficiency.
We share ideas on how to support a more inclusive work environment and the critical role of role models and mentors. Annette even offers to answer any listener who is considering a career in tech and is looking for a mentor!
