About us

We’re a small, but perfectly formed team who have worked in the digital sector, with a range of organisations from start-ups to global corporate companies, for many years.

We started to reach out to women and young girls through events to mark occasions, like Ada Lovelace Day and International Women’s Day. The feedback we had proved there was a clear appetite for some kind of support and programmes for adults and also a lighter touch version for the younger generation.

Utilising our experience and expertise, we have developed and piloted our programmes, and are leading the way to help organisations cultivate an inclusive culture and values that both benefit women and men, future generations, and the workforce and workplace as a whole.
