Computer Science modules taken during her History degree at the University of Leicester, led to Siân’s first role managing all things computer related for a small Public Affairs and Relations recruitment consultancy, and initiated a career in technology.  She then spent eight years with PricewaterhouseCoopers in technology roles aligned to the Recruitment and HR division, before moving into the internal IT division.

In 2019 Siân won the National Women in Technology ‘Advocate of the Year’ award in recognition of her efforts to correct imbalances in both the pipeline and workplace.  She has been a senior female panellist at  Blackrock ‘IT’s not just for Boys’ and also at ‘Driving Innovation through Diversity’ hosted by  Amazon/AT Kearny’s for International Women’s Day.

Siân co-chairs the Morgan Stanley London Computing at Schools Committee, has acted as a Dragon for the Apps for Good annual awards, and sits on the Steering Group of the ‘Tech She Can’ Charter which is a commitment by over 100 firms to work together to increase the number of women in technology in the UK.

She is Morgan Stanley’s Graduate Recruitment Diversity Lead for the London offices and has co-sponsored the annual Spring Insight London programme since 2017, helping to drive campus hiring numbers to gender parity for Summer and Spring interns.  She lives in Radlett, north west of London with her husband and rescue cat.
