Who: Vanessa Vallely OBE Founded of We Are The City.
In today’s episode Vanessa Vallely OBE (for services to women
in the economy) has 25 years in banking, 13 years ago she realised
the lack of opportunity for women in the organisation.
Vanessa has since started a number of initiatives aimed at
gender equality, diversity across the board, championing
entrepreneurship and a focus on intersectional feminism.
Of the back of her hard work and ideals she created We Are The
City, which was developed 13 years ago, they celebrated their 13th
birthday last week, and WeAreTechWomen seven years ago.
She discusses how and why these organisations are important,
and what changes she has seen in tech. After winning 22 Awards in
her career she is in a great position to give advice to those who
are starting and developing their career.
Vanessa also shares what to expect from the One Tech World
conference - an exciting virtual educational and networking
conference for men and women who are interested in tech.
