Sexism in tech brought into focus


A report on sexism in tech is just one of the stories exclusive to the digital edition of our magazine.

For the online-only version of BusinessCloud – which you can read below – our reporter Katherine Lofthouse spoke with several people in the industry to find out their experiences of sexism.

They include tech entrepreneur and writer Melissa Jun Rowley, web developer Chad Gowler – who identifies as gender non-binary – Cari Kirby of HTML game developer Team Cooper, software engineer Katie Fenn and Tejay White of Tribal.

In a separate interview, PCL Group founder Jeanette Forbes describes how she read the sports pages to build bridges with male colleagues on oil rigs – and how the team rallied round her when he ex-husband died.

There is extra content and case studies in the online version of our mental health report, including the tech businesses who are building a culture supportive of mental health concerns.

You can watch embedded videos relevant to many of the articles, including augmented and virtual reality, tech in retail and manufacturing, and regional reports on clusters in Bolton, Liverpool and the Thames Valley.

There is also an interview with the Indian billionaire brothers looking to build their latest and biggest tech venture, Flock, in the UK; and two tech businesses making waves in the world of football – Playsight and Supponor.
