Sue Black OBE in conversation with Vanessa Vallely OBE - She Talks Tech podcast

Today we hear from award-winning Computer Scientist and Digital Skills Expert, Sue Black OBE.

Sue set up the UK’s first online network for women in tech and led the campaign to save Bletchley Park. She left home at 16, married at 20 and had three children by 23 – becoming a single parent at 25. We hear about Sue’s background and career in tech and her most recent passion ‘TechUPWomen’ – which is all about retraining women from underserved backgrounds into tech careers.

You can find out more about and connect with Sue on LinkedIn.


‘She Talks Tech’ brings you stories, lessons and tips from some of the most inspirational women (and men!) in tech.

From robotics and drones, to fintech, neurodiversity and coronavirus apps; these incredible speakers are opening up to give us the latest information on tech in 2020.

Vanessa Valleley OBE, founder of WeAreTheCity and WeAreTechWomen brings you this latest resource to help you rise to the top of the tech industry. Women in tech make up just 17 per cent of the industry in the UK and we want to inspire that to change.

WeAreTechWomen are delighted to bring this very inspiring first series to wherever you normally listen to podcasts – and the first three episodes are now live!

So subscribe, rate the podcast and give it a 5-star review – and keep listening every Wednesday morning for a new episode of ‘She Talks Tech’.
