Description

That means taking on counterproductive work policies, and the people hiding biases within your workplace who will get in your way. Imafidon assumes no prior knowledge or understanding on the reader's part, explaining the very basics, such as the necessity of digital literacy - "A certain level of digital literacy is necessary to get along in life," she explains. This is redundant for Imafidon's core audience of technologically engaged young women, but perhaps that is no shortcoming for 'She's in CTRL', which primarily aims to teach, convince, and encourage people not already engaged with tech. ARIA Top 100 Albums for 2021". Australian Recording Industry Association . Retrieved January 13, 2022. I wouldn’t say I have any negative self-talk or even imposter syndrome. For me, a lot of the spaces I’m in I have been invited to, so I know there is value I can bring – because I know the experiences I’ve had and the network I have.

SHE’S IN Ctrl is an inspirational narrative about how women must play a part in ensuring a future that’s evenly distributed.

Event type

As a society there is so much that needs to be done structurally. I’d love these changes to happen without WeAreTheCity or without Stemettes. I’d love it if the powers that be would support change, but I don’t know that we’ve necessarily headed in the right direction – there’s definitely an ‘anti-woke’ push that’s not helping. It’s incredibly important. If you see someone like Yewande Biala (a smart biochemist who went to university early) on Love Island, that helps to normalise women in STEM. After studying at Oxford, I went to work in The City and was invited to speak at the largest women in tech conference in the world, the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing.

Purdom, Clayton (June 16, 2017). "Thank god SZA finally released Ctrl". The A.V. Club . Retrieved July 13, 2017.It’s also important to consider the effect science fiction has on the imagination. So many of the folks that are super excited to be technologists credit sci-fi, games, and films and TV shows they enjoyed during their formative years with influencing how they see the world and what they think should happen in it next. She's in CTRL' has a very broad scope; there are perhaps three books in here jostling for focus. On the whole, however, it is an ultra-accessible book which makes an effective case for tech literacy and engagement for all. It will have the greatest impact among readers not already engaged with the tech world, and would make a good gift for a young daughter – or indeed an elderly mother.
