Challenging the status quo

Tech’s gender problem gets a lot of airtime: the complaints, the harassment, the obstacles. What gets less acknowledgment: the solutions and the incredible people (who happen to be women) already doing amazing work.

In partnership with ComputerWeekly, Level39, Skymind, The Woolf Partnership, and Google for Startups, Makers has launched the UK’s first Women in Software Power List to showcase the UK’s top rising stars in the coding community. In 2020, we’re also launching the Changemakers List to recognise initiatives supporting women in tech.
