When I'm asked about the best piece of advice I would give to any woman seeking a career in the fields of science, technology, education and mathematics (STEM) - where government figures show that women hold just 15.5% of jobs - my first response is to pick a good mentor.
Perhaps somewhere along the way we as women lose the curiosity to try and understand how things work and how to solve problems. Personally I think it is far more likely there is an image problem with technology and I believe we should be able to do something about this if we work together.
Juggling a hectic work schedule with demanding family life can be an enormous challenge, and the pressures of a small business environment can be particularly tricky. The nature of small businesses mean work time threatens to bleed into 'home time'.
