Everyone who I work with knows that I seriously love a side project. Large tech companies like Google actively encourage their employees to take time out for personal projects to encourage innovation and I think it’s really important to ensure you embed that into company culture right from the get-go. This is why I’ve always put time aside for stuff like Ignite Cardiff or doing my Post-Grad Certificate.
2016 is absolutely no different, with the launch of an exciting project aimed at Women in Tech. I’ve done a few blog posts around this subject before (they are way quicker and easier to write because it’s a really huge passion and I don’t get so picky because it’s not my main business!). In January, myself and my co-founder Lyanna launched ‘Re:Program’ a community aimed at supporting and raising the visibility of Women in Tech, Digital and Entrepreneurship.
