Kathryn Parsons, a leading figure in the tech world, shines a spotlight on the British females who are shaking up the industry

Kathryn ParsonsKathryn Parsons speaker, founder of the digital education company, Decoded, has teamed up with The Sunday Times Magazine to compile a list of the leading women in British tech. “Lists are powerful,” she says. “History is littered with lists of men. The future is being written in lines of code. I don’t want women written out of that.”

A common misconception is that there’s a skills or ability gap between women and men in tech, but quite often the only issue is a confidence gap. With women only making up 17% of Britain’s tech workforce, Kathryn is among a number of inspiring role models who are trying to change the status quo. Women are blazing a trail across the tech industry – particularly in programming and software development – and are more likely to be early adopters of new tech.
