Women and Tech with Prof Sue Black OBE

Why is the relationship between women and tech so complicated? With women's contributions to tech often hidden from history, girls are still less likely to choose a career in tech than their male counterparts. And, as users, the experience of tech - especially social media - is often much more complicated for women than it is for men. Our guest this week is Professor Sue Black OBE whose extraordinary contribution to technology, and commitment to empowering women to feel confident with it, propelled her astonishing career path out of poverty, to become one of the most influential women in tech in the UK, saving the Bletchley Park home of the WWII code breakers (the majority of them women), along the way.
