My guest for this episode is Amali de Alwis MBE, CEO of Code First: Girls, a programme that works with businesses and individuals to encourage more women in into a career in tech. Amali explains her love of making everything from electronic circuits and toy costumes as a child to strategies for blue chip companies in her career. As Amali says, "the technology is just technology, it's just the tools. What we want to do is encourage people use their imagination to feel empowered and enabled, so if they see these problems if there are things they want to change, they have the skills and knowledge to do that."
