Meet the guest of episode 063, Anne-Marie Imafidon:

Dr AnneMarie Imafidon is a keynote speaker, presenter and creator of the award-winning social enterprise, Stemettes, which inspires the next generation of females into science, technology, engineering and maths.

A recognized and respected thought-leader in the tech space, in 2017 she was awarded an MBE for services to young women and STEM sectors. In 2020 she was voted the most influential woman in tech in the UK by Computer Weekly. She co-hosted Countdown for 6 months between 2021 and 2022.  She is currently president elect of The British Science Association.

And more about She’s in CTRL, her new book:

Our eyes are now open to the dangerous fact that our technology is built by a series of big decisions made by a small number of people, mainly men. It means our technology is derived from the gender, nationality and beliefs of a section of society whose lived experience may not chime with your own. The tech world might feel beyond reach, particularly if you’re a woman.

In She’s In CTRL, Dr AnneMarie Imafidon, a dynamic advocate for women in STEM, insists that technology is not an unchangeable and unquestionable force. It is not the preserve of the elite. It is in our homes and in our hands. Rather than feeling powerless to make changes to the way tech works and fails, she argues that it’s time to get into the room where the decisions are made. Or, better yet, create our own tech rooms.

Covering everything from 3D printing, AI, blockchain and bitcoin, to virtual reality and wearable tech, this powerful book about women, tech and daring to dream takes inspiration from Dr Imafidon’s own experience and from the stories of other pioneers and innovators who have, against the odds, transformed technology, including:

* Jenny Griffiths, software engineer and founder of visual search engine Snap Vision.
* Sharmadean Reid, founder of WAH Nails and Beauty Stack, a tech start-up that gives people the tools they need for accounting, marketing and booking within the beauty industry.
* Billie Quinlan, founder of the Ferly app which focuses on women’s sexual health and intimacy.
* Tobi Oredein, founder of Black Ballad, a UK based lifestyle platform that seeks to tell the human experience through eyes of black British women.
* Deborah Okenla, founder and CEO of Your Startup, Your Story.
* Abadesi Osunsade, CEO and founder of Hustle Crew, a community whose aim is to make tech more inclusive.
SHE’S IN Ctrl is an inspirational narrative about how women must play a part in ensuring a future that’s evenly distributed.
