Attracting and retaining women in tech requires a business culture shift
Michelle Gyimah is the Director of Equality Pays, a Tech Gender Equality Consultancy dedicated to helping technology firms create inclusive business cultures.
We have over 8 years’ experience of working at the Equality and Human Rights Commission where we focused on helping employers understand how to implement equality law into practice. After 8 years advising both public and private sectors employers we decided that we wanted be more ‘hands on’ in helping firms improve gender diversity.
Who are we?
In June 2014, Equality Pays was established to help tech firms figure out what steps they need to take to to improve gender diversity. There is so much information out there on what the tech industry is doing wrong and what to do to rectify the situation. You have probably spent hours going from place to place, googling for answers and yearning for a solution to the problems you have. If this is you, then you have come to right place. We have the answers and solutions to the problems you face.

We do this by working with you to find your unique problem areas and develop bespoke strategies. This can include training, strategy days, developing new policies, project work or providing one-to-one consultancy. We cut out all the noise of imformation overload and focus on unique business strategies designed just for yout firm.
We understand the pressures of trying to improve gender diversity in tech as it is a hot topic right now.
