Colleen recognised - changing the landscape of the industry #IB100
People with different experiences and from a variety of backgrounds are key in order for the tech industry to innovate now and in the future.
We at DesignSpark are so super chuffed for Colleen Wong to have been recognised as an influential leader and role model, changing the landscape of the industry.
Colleen said "Sometimes customers think that we are a big tech company. We are not. Diversity and flexibility is what makes our small team super productive."
Inclusive Boards, a UK executive search agency, specialising in diversity and inclusion at governance level, has published results of research conducted in 2018 that 74.5% of Boards in the tech sector had no BAME members (black, Asian and minority ethnic) and that BAME people made up just 8.5% of senior leaders (Directors and Executives) in the sector.
Now in its second year, the list of the 100 most influential BAME leaders in tech has been produced by Inclusive Boards in partnership with the Financial Times.
