ARE TECHNOLOGISTS.

Inclusivity is fundamentally about being welcome, being heard, being valued. We share stories of ThoughtWorkers to celebrate technologists from all walks of life, to inspire, or to help you recognize the technologist in you. We would love to hear your story.

“I was born deaf. I started my career in Pensions, where a lot of business is done over the phone. I hated it, but when I found the computer in the office, my career took a new direction.

I became a developer. For many years, it was just me and the code as I couldn’t participate in meetings. When stenographers (and government funding to support them) became an option, a new world opened up. I love tech, I love leading tech projects and I love the creativity involved in consulting.”

"When I was 17, I used the internet for the first time. It was 1995 and I had just arrived at University. I was so inspired by the possibilities, I changed my degree from philosophy to computing, and never looked back.

Since then, I have embarked on an often surprising, but always exciting, career that has taken me to brilliant places I never imagined - today I am group MD for Asia Pacific. Women in leadership roles in tech may be a small group, but I am honored to be a part of a truly supportive community."

"I trained as a scientist but my flair for understanding and fixing problems brought me to tech. Previously, I worked across telecoms, travel and logistics but as a genderqueer migrant, I found it hard to fit in.

Now, I’ve finally found a place where I can be myself. When I’m not working with our clients to help solve their problems, I’m on a mission to make tech and our society more tolerant, accepting and inclusive."

"As a data geek straight out of school, ThoughtWorks has opened up a world of possibilities for me. I was not just able to use my passion for data to help businesses, but also for social good - including, but not limited to humanitarian response, making the web inclusive and other important social problems that the world is facing today.

I’ve also authored a book on data and have been an active part of important community groups such as Women Who Code and Datakind."
