    TFGL2020 - S1 - Ep3 - Intentionality

    On this week's show we’re looking at the release of the Tech Talent Charter report. In short, if you’re a woman in tech, everything is still crap. We’ll also be looking at Nicky Morgan’s 5 principles to make tech work for everyone. Principle 1, is probably - “there’s no such thing as a principle worth sticking to”, and Principle 2 is, “let’s all eat the poor”. 


    Hera Hussain is on hosting duties, she’s joined by TFGL team members Greg Ashton and Producer Paul.


    Our guest this week is Dan Sodergren (Flock / The Landing). Dan is a serial startup founder and a digital marketing and technology expert with over 20 years experience in the Manchester technology sector.
