Technology is not just about coding and this podcast is not just for women. We’re celebrating every single person in a tech role or a tech company. We’re bringing together people at all levels and talking to ‘real models’ that share experiences, dispelling myths, soundbites and gimmicks that may be holding us back. We’re tackling issues through plain speaking, honesty, no gimmicks or soundbites, no fakery – just reality.
