She is a futurist who believes existing structures in the technology industry must change in order to serve tomorrow’s digital landscape, and that our children’s future job prospects depend on it. Her focus is on:
- leadership, innovation, and education to champion Australian tech entrepreneurship and
- address the necessary rebalancing of gender roles within the traditionally male-dominated STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) space.
