Zeren’s Women In Tech Series: The Importance Of Breaking The Bias

Calendar icon 9th March 2022



“Our world is now a digital one in which every person, regardless of gender, interacts …

… Without diversity in the teams of people solving the problems we face, how can we expect our products and services to fully serve the entire population?”

Pippa Topp Chief Product Officer, High-Growth EdTech Platform

Female Leaders in Technology are just as important now as they were in the 1950s, when the first female Computer Programming Supervisors, including Dorothy Vaughan, were promoted at NASA.


Dorothy’s grace and resilience in the face of discrimination are as admirable as the hundreds of different coding and computing problems she solved.


When asked why it’s important for more women to join the tech industry, one of many responses from Chief People Officer Pascale Anderson Mair, our Executive Leadership network, rightly stated that “technology is rather objective in terms of know-how and it respects results”, so equality in the workplace can help fuel wildly successful outcomes.

“Diverse teams and leadership drive innovation, and the gender balance plays a huge part of building a successful team and wider organisation.”

Tracy Maraj Chief People Officer, Series B-Funded, Hospitality Tech
