We chat to Aimee Whitcroft, Open Data Establishment Lead at the New Zealand Transport Agency, and co-founder of GovWorks NZ. Beginning her career in science and academia, we hear about Aimee’s passion for knowledge and continual learning.
With an impressive energy for side hustles, we chat about Aimee’s many community projects including organising open source meet-ups, government hacks, and Nerd Nite events. An advocate of ethical and human-centred technology, we discuss what it means to embed kindness in our smart cities, and rebalance societal power structures.
And finally, Aimee shares an amazing story of how she became one of the first women to drive the full 11,000 miles of the Mongol Rally - what better way to start off your weekend than with inspiration for adventure!
