Women in Tech

We're on a mission to educate and inspire more women about the opportunities a career in tech can offer. We hope to help make technology a more diverse and inclusive working environment for everyone.

We think it’s about time the number of women in technology increased. We recognise that part of the challenge is to demystify the perception of what a career in technology offers whilst inspiring more women to join our industry.

In January 2019, we kicked off our first Women in Tech campaign to understand why there are so few women in the sector and how we can educate and inspire others to consider a career in technology.

Our mission is to create a diverse community in which women will be equal participants in creating and developing the products and services that shape our industry.

build a career in technology

We recognise that empowering women and creating a balanced environment is paramount and should be at the top of every organisation’s agenda.

Here at ANS, we’re making a conscious effort to not only hire more women into the technology industry but also raise awareness of the amazing opportunities a career in tech can bring.

In the last year, we have recruited 20 females and promoted 14 of our existing female employees. We’ve also held an array of networking events, talking panels and virtual webinars to raise awareness and grow the WIT community.

female role models play an important part

Role models play an important part in anyone’s professional journey. They provide inspiration, guidance & advice that provide you with the tools to grow your career & help you achieve your goals.

With so few women in tech, we need to create more role models for young women inside & outside of our industry.

Megan Corlett

Account Manager at ANS and Women in Tech Ambassador for 2021

Megan’s background isn’t one you might expect. Having spent 10 successful years in banking and travel sales, she felt it was time to take on a new challenge to help her grow both professionally and personally.

Bringing with her communication skills, a desire to help customers, a knack for problem solving and a relentless energy, Megan joined ANS in February 2019. No career change is without its challenges but those transferable skills gave her the confidence to dive head first into her role and it wasn’t long before the successes started rolling in.

Sticking to her mantra to never stop learning, Megan feels very fortunate to be working in a thriving industry such as tech and is working hard towards her aspirations of becoming a sales leader.

Megan is very aware of the opportunities a career in tech has given her and is passionate about doing the same for others. Her goal for 2021 is to raise awareness of what a fantastic opportunity a career in tech can offer, particularly with women who are traditionally under-represented in the industry and sometimes lack the confidence to think themselves capable of taking a leap into a different vocation.
