Women in Business

Sexism is alive and well, and it's not funny.

In reaction to the 'Legs-it' Daily Mail headline, CC Director Janice Grant-Shaw wrote an article about her own experiences of sexism in the tech industry.

I have worked in IT, Oil & Gas and more recently the space sectors most of my working life. I have experienced my fair share of discrimination, bad behaviour and being ignored in my career. I learned to deal with most situations, and thought that such behaviour was relegated to the past. There has certainly been a marked change since the 1980s. We must also remember that women can be equally cruel to men, it just doesn’t happen so often.
