Techmums founder talks about advising government, gender quotas and Bletchley Park
Dr Sue Black, the founder of techmums and honorary professor at University College London, has joined the government’s new digital advisory group, which features a 50-50 split between men and women.
Black is one of seven women on the board, including Baroness Martha Lane-Fox and WeAreTheCity.com founder Vanessa Vallely. It will meet four times a year to support, advise and challenge the government to deliver better digital public services.
Here she speaks to IT Pro about her appointment, and, on International Women’s Day, about how to get more women into the technology sector.
