E06: Amy Lynch, Head of Diversity and Inclusion
It's a pleasure to introduce you to Amy Lynch this month. She's Head of Diversity and Inclusion at ThoughtWorks, a global consultancy company with one of the most diverse workforces I've ever come across.
In this episode I get to ask her what that means for her, the value that placing a priority on diversity brings, her thoughts on how to recruit diverse people, and how she manages to fit her love of photography in around all of this.
At one point in the discussion Amy mentions that at Afrotech fest she heard a quote that 2% of tech jobs in the UK are occupied by black people. It was actually a Silicon Valley figure, and we don't have the data in the UK yet.
