Craving for a better work life balance and eager to spend more time with her children, Rav decided to change her career in her early 40’s. Her move into tech recruitment, ignited her passion to support more women into the technology industry.

Mivy James

I started my career as an IT professional whilst studying computer science & maths at university having landed summer jobs as a coder.

Over 25 years in the tech industry i have incrementally transitioned from being an analyst / programmer through a system design / architecture / team leading career path to become a technical strategy advisor to large government IT programmes. I have been Head of Consulting at BAE Systems since 2014 and have recently reinvented myself to be Digital Transformation Director. I am responsible for over 150 tech consultants and advise government CTOs and their teams on their digital transformation.

I am the founder and chair of my company's gender balance network and partner with government departments on their gender balance initiatives.

I regularly speak at technical conferences both as a key note speaker and panelist. Most recently I chaired the opening day of a large virtual conference. I am particularly proud that i took this multi-day event with 50+ speakers from being an all-male line up to having multiple female contributors each day by challenging the organisers and raising the issue with a senior male ally who was also speaking at the event.
