Elizabeth Tweedale is the founder of Cypher Coders, the UK’s leading coding school for kids aged 6-12. We cover entrepreneurship, motherhood, and take a deep dive into her 20s to prove just how different everyone’s journey is. She shares some invaluable life lessons and advice for those of us in our 20s keen for a little guidance, and we discuss some of the hurdles faced by women in tech, what we can do to encourage young girls to consider careers in STEM, and she explains why our understanding of “STEM” needs to be broader.
We also discuss the daunting reality of just how critical coding knowledge is, especially for younger generations, since it’s the foundation on which the future is largely built. Anyone with coding skills can create a website or an online product and reach global markets – the opportunities for those who understand are huge in contrast to those available for those who don’t.
