Blog by Bethan Wilkin - Where Are All the Women Working in Tech... The Mother Of All Algorithms

This is only the second time I've felt compelled to write about my experience with gender (and I didn’t even follow through the first time) but I’m at a point in my career (and life) where I feel I would be drawing the right kind of attention to being a female and all the fascinations that always brings to the table.

The trigger this time has been a recent recruitment drive and this is probably my 5th round of recruitment where all the names I see on the CVs are male, of British origin and have a penchant for Tech. As lovely and talented as these guys are, I’m getting really, really bored of it... we all are in fact.
