Is Lucy unusual in understanding the opportunities offered by degree and higher apprenticeships? Are careers advisors and parents behind the curve on these opportunities?
Lynette Ryals
30:07
Is standing out (as a woman in tech) a positive or is it difficult?
Elizabeth Sheldon
31:06
It depends on the person. As long as you have a positive contribution you will be welcomed and valued. Speaking for its own sake is counterproductive.
Lucy Cox
31:30
A good point Lynette. I would say my parents were very supportive when it came to deciding what I wanted to do after leaving school and absolutely helped that curve develop.
Lynette Ryals

Interesting that several panel members have talked about their skills being transferable, which is not how we tend to view tech! Which skills are truly transferable, and what would the panel suggest that young women focus on, in terms of skills building, to help them in a tech career?
Elizabeth Sheldon
36:35
Critical Thinking every time
Catherine Green
37:03
Communication skills are key for me in tech
Leon Williams

Design Thinking..!
Lucy Cox
41:54
I think the analytical/'read between the lines' skill has been useful for me. Also having good communication skills.
Leon Williams
43:19
What a fantastic idea… a career toolkit…!
Lynette Ryals
44:09
So interesting! Why do we still ask people to submit c.v.s for a job, when we could just look at LinkedIn?
Cecilia Harvey
44:55
So true!

Tambu Mangezi

Very much a Lark
Emma Bawden

I tend to flit between the two depending on what I have on!
Kamila Falkowska
53:16
I think I'm a bit of both! Owl on the weekends...
Emma Bawden
59:03
I read something recently that suggests women tend to self-select out of a recruitment processes early where there is a long list of essential criteria, compared with men who tend to be more confident in applying where they don't meet all the criteria
Lynette Ryals
59:24
I've heard that too, Emma
Lynette Ryals
59:49
Is it a double difficulty, being a black female boss?
Cecilia Harvey
01:02:10
good question….it is about mindset …no is the short answer
Lynette Ryals
