In conversation with Genevieve Bell of Intel

Before Easter I had the great pleasure to sit down with a wonderful person - Genevieve Bell - who I've long admired, and we discussed our experiences as women working in technology. The prompt was International Women's Day, but the value of the chat is much deeper. It's really about how we make the most of the great opportunities that come with technical progress and the internet.

Every woman digital – plugging the ICT skills gap

Me brainstorming with dynamic and committed MEPs: (from my right) Romana Jordan Cizelj, the hand of Marietje Schaake, Edit Herczog, Arlene McCarthy and Doris Pack. Plus senior Commission official Linda Corugedo Steneberg. Thanks to all of them!

I've blogged before about getting Every Woman Digital. I continue to find it troubling that women are under-represented in the ICT sector at every level, and particularly in decision-making positions. And the situation doesn't seem to be getting better. I'm worried when people assume that ICT careers wouldn't offer exciting opportunities for women. But if women are going into the sector and not being made to feel welcome, well, that worries me even more.

Every Woman Digital - the task for the ICT sector

On this International Women's Day – the 100th - I remain frustrated, but optimistic about the role of women in Europe's ICT sector.
