Celebrating Women in Tech

Equality is extremely important to us at SVGC. We pride ourselves on our fair and robust recruitment process and development programme that provides opportunities regardless of gender identification, ethnicity and disability.

Many of us have heard of male leaders in tech; Elon Musk, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg – but perhaps not as many are familiar with those such as Ada Lovelace, Grace Hopper, Susan Wojcicki, Whitney Wolfe Herd, Sheryl Sandberg and other pioneering women.

More recently, it’s been promising to see growth in the numbers of women in tech, not only in entry level roles but senior level, too, and more women are being encouraged to join the ranks of innovators and creators driving remarkable technological innovations for our world.

So, for this #InternationalWomensDay we wanted to celebrate the world of women in tech. After all, a career in technology means working with a range diverse people who are some of the brightest and most innovative minds in the world.

A woman that piqued our interest in the world of tech is Anna Chung, the Principal Researcher in the Global Threat Intelligence Team at Palo Alto Networks. She works on the Unit 42 team and her work sees her understanding the cyberthreat landscape to provide intelligence assessments that help customers prioritise actions, time and resources. Anna shares her experiences of working in the field of technology and cyber security in this blog.

Working in the technology sector can mean working on some totally out-of-this-world projects that can help millions of people globally. We’re extremely proud to have some fantastic women working with us to execute projects that enable the public sector to make great decisions and get robust results.
