Sonya Barlow – Women of Colour in Tech

Summary: As different personalities in the workplace we are often told to leave our mood at home and come to work in the most professional manner. With over 47% of millenials having a side hustle, less than 15% of females in technology and the average pay gap being 18% in a data role, its time to discuss the truth about inclusivity, culture and what we need to start doing to change the status quo and make data more diverse, different and daring! How can we leave our moods at home when the data shows it just isn’t as fair?
