She's In CTRL: How women can take back tech - to communicate, investigate, problem-solve, broker deals and protect themselves in
An inspirational exploration of why women are under-represented in tech, why it matters, and what we can do about it.
The tech world might feel beyond reach, particularly if you're a woman. With increasingly frank admission women are woefully under-represented in tech - roughly a mere quarter of the UK STEM workforce - the dangerous fact is clear our technology is the product of a series of big decisions made by a small number of people, mainly men. Our lives have gone digital, but our technology risks being tailored to a section of society whose lived experience may be far from our own.
In She's In CTRL, computer scientist Dr Anne-Marie Imafidon, a dynamic advocate for women in STEM, calls time on women being cut out of the tech story. Technology is not an unchangeable force, nor the preserve of the elite, she argues. It is in our homes and in our hands. In her powerful book about women, tech and daring to dream, Dr Imafidon shows we have more agency than we think, drawing on her own experience and the stories of other pioneers and innovators who have, against the odds, transformed technology.
The world needs more women in tech and, in her inspiring narrative, Dr Imafidon shows not only why this is but how we can all play our part in ensuring a future that's evenly distributed.
