Having entered the tech sector in May, Louise Gilbey is encouraging women to follow suit and help address the gender disparity in the industry.
She said: “The technology sector is largely male-oriented, with women making up just 16% of the workforce. To see a greater uptake of roles for females in the technology industry, women must ignore perceived obstacles and follow their passion.
“If you are at the very beginning of your tech journey, get experience and utilise contacts. It is a great sector and one that is only going to continue to grow. Put yourself out there, work hard, ask for help when you need it. Remember that anything is possible!”
Gilbey recently joined razorblue as a Business Direction Manager following roles at law and real estate firms.
