A Greater Manchester initiative that encourages women into the tech industry has launched its new podcast.
The Digital Her podcast brings together women from its 350-strong community to have a series of inspiring conversations about what the tech industry has to offer, its opportunities, as well as topics that affect many people such as understanding imposter syndrome or moving into leadership roles.
Presented and produced by programme lead Kirsten Peters Roebuck with special guest hosts, the first episode is now live, with four more being launched each week in the first series.
The first episode is about Fintech careers, with guests Zahraa Murtaza from GFT; and Sian English and Jo Gibson from Bankifi.

Katie Gallagher, managing director of Manchester Digital, who spearheaded the programme, said: “We’re really proud to officially launch our Digital Her podcast which will help spread our message further and continue to encourage more women into the tech industry.
“By bringing together different voices from women with different journeys and different paths into their tech roles, we can share their experiences and understand the various challenges that women have experienced in the tech industry.”
