There are more CEOs named Peter leading the top UK companies than there are female CEOs in total. This speaks to a widespread issue of gender diversity in the tech industry but when we compound barriers faced by women with the intersectional characteristic of race, the outcomes are more dire.
It’s no secret that the technology industry has a diversity problem.
On today’s show, we’re joined by Almarni Khan, Inclusion & Diversity Programme Manager at GBG, the digital identity experts.
Almarni shares her own experiences and the challenges that women of colour continue to face, what needs to done, and why we need to challenge the existing structures within businesses to ensure they are inclusive to all. It is critical that women in tech are supported to claim their own space and grow and develop throughout their careers.
