The techUK podcast: Female tech leaders in Justice and Policing: Not IF you can, but HOW you can

In this episode techUK’s Head of Justice and Emergency Services Georgie Henley speaks with Charlotte Hails, Virgin Media o2 Business, Linda Wales, Pegasystems and Moira Roberts, Cloud Gateway for Women in Tech Month about what it’s like being women in tech and why they chose this career path specifically in Policing.


A really inspiring discussion with three women, from different backgrounds – some which chose this career path and others which fell into it. Their roles, enabling them to really make a difference, urging the next generation to have open conversations, to be inquisitive about differences and understand the value of a diverse workforce. The more diversity you have in any group, the more choices you have, the more opinions – so the better it will be.  

We need more women, both in tech and law enforcement. We also need more male allies! 

Make sure you register to join us on 20 June, for an afternoon of panel discussions and networking, bringing together members and stakeholders to showcase the work and impact women are having across the National Security, Policing and Defence. Sectors which are predominately still male dominated sectors. Sign up to attend our Women in Security, Policing and Defence event.
