For technology to be truly inclusive, it has to be representative of all of society. And as technologists, each one of us has the power to make that happen. To make tech a better, more welcoming and sustainable home for all those who have been discriminated against historically, irrespective of their social background, race, age, class, gender, or ability. Join our community as we endeavor to make tech a better home for everyone. You can follow us on social media using the hashtag #HomeInTech.

Stories that inspire

We are a community that is passionate about learning, and sharing what we learn. A community that nurtures and celebrates talent, irrespective of gender, background and any bias. As ThoughtWorkers, we have equal opportunities to grow, share our ideas and even re-invent ourselves.

In that spirit, here we share the stories of some of our talented technologists, from developers to designers - because not every techie writes code. Go on, read their stories and get inspired.

Clare Sudbery

“I was born into a family of mathematicians, but a glimpse into games development got me interested in tech. I built my first computer, got a Masters in Computing and became a software developer.

After 12 years, I took a break to focus on my love for writing and teaching, but I realized soon that tech was the place for me. Since coming back, I’ve been an advocate of TDD and pair programming, I’ve started speaking at conferences and I’m currently providing technical leadership for local government."

Wang Ni

"As a grad at the cusp of choosing a career path, I was warned about the hardships that a 'woman in tech' faces. But the past five years at ThoughtWorks has removed any trace of doubt from my mind. The feeling of pride that I experience when I build a product with my own hands is unparalleled.

I want to use my story to remove any misgivings that aspiring women technologists might have that stems from a lack of understanding of the work that people in IT do. I talk to young girls still in campus about what it means to be a ‘woman in tech’, and how they can transform the world using technology."

Brett Vincent

"I lost my eyesight at the age of 6 due to a degenerative eye condition. Even though I had a passion for computers, the lack of braille computers made it challenging to pursue it. But I persevered - after university in South Africa, I worked for 15 years in multiple organizations before I joined ThoughtWorks.

Here, I have never felt as being disadvantaged due to my disability. I am given equal opportunities as anyone else - whether as a speaker at events or being a part of important client projects. My tech dream is to use my interest in Machine Learning and IoT to build technology that can make lives of people with disabilities easier."

Hanaa Abdallah

"I grew up in the Netherlands and completed my studies in the UK. I wanted to study law but went down the business and computing route after becoming more and more curious about tech.

I joined ThoughtWorks as a graduate and spent my first 5 weeks in India. Since then, I’ve worked on publishing, financial services and government projects. I wanted to work somewhere where I would be heard and support aspiring graduates."
