Tell us about your journey into tech?
After riding the bike-share boom from Beijing, China to the world I joined the British B-corp operator Beryl, to bring truly sustainable transport to the UK.
Since joining Beryl in 2019, we’ve launched 6 city wide micro-mobility schemes nationally, as well as the worlds first multi-modal service in Norwich, and are soon to launch internationally with a service in New York. We’ve supported key workers to move safely and enjoyably during the most difficult of times, and forged partnerships with local authorities, local businesses and community groups to establish a micro-mobility service that each city can be proud to call it’s own.
How do you feel you have made a difference in what you do?
I’m proud to be the Chair of the Women @ Beryl Network and one of our our MHFA UK trained Mental Health First Aiders. I take every opportunity to state that Black Lives Matter, am a facilitator of Google’s #IAmRemarkable Course, a volunteer at a Shelter charity shop and often participate in activism that seeks to uplift those in minority or underrepresented groups in the workplace and the world.
What would you say is your biggest achievement?
Achieving the role I have within an industry that has much work to do to attract and support black women in senior roles. Within that using my position to highlight this work and create space for more black women to join the industry/
How do you think people can go about making a difference, in regards to spreading awareness of Black Women in tech?
Keep turning the volume up – use your voice and platform to champion black women in tech. This starts with shouting out your own achievements and being as visible in your successes as you can.
