- Josephine Colson
As the Chief Marketing Officer for Code Like a Girl, Josie Colson is an influential voice in the conversation of gender equity in tech. A marketer's job is to tell the story of a product in a way that helps consumers identify the solution it provides. But what story do you tell of a product that is designed and built by a homogenous group of developers? Can it really be labelled as a "solution" if it only meets the needs of a small percentage of users? After 7 years working in the industry, Josie grew tired of peddling technology that was built by a small demographic with a limited world view. So she joined forces with the CLC Girl Gang and now uses her efforts to tell the story of tech's gender problem. And the solution is clear – it's time to change the face of tech. Code Like A Girl is a community of Australian women inspired by technology, hungry to grow their coding skills and share it with others. We enable and inspire women and girls around the globe to be equal creators in the world of technology.
