Cathy talks to us about the importance of including and attracting more women in building the future; the importance of support from family and teachers; actively explaining what an exciting career engineering can be; she also tells us about the work of the Future Cities Catapult

Helen Keegan and I spent International Women’s Day interviewing women (and some men) in tech (and other sectors!) in London about their experience of gender in the workplace and where we’re at with equality. We’re releasing the audio as podcasts over the next couple of days with minimal editing. We will produce a digest of all the conversations later in the week.

We dashed over to Accelerator in Kingsland Rd to meet Imogen from Qudini

The product was born at a hackathon in 2012 to help solve queuing using NFC technology.

Imogen describes her move to tech from advertising, what IWD means for her as well as her approach to helping women achieve pay parity and share parenting opportunities.
