Episode 125: 30th July 2020

This week we discuss equality, diversity and inclusion and focus our attention on two champion women Dame Stephanie (Steve) Shirley and Maggie Philbin OBE who have both made their mark for gender equality in IT and STEM.

The Equality Act of 2010 brought together nine pieces of legislation under one new ‘catch all’ umbrella and sets out clear guidance to ensure everyone  be treated equally regardless of the following:

  • the Equal Pay Act 1970
  • the Sex Discrimination Act 1975
  • the Race Relations Act 1976
  • the Disability Discrimination Act 1995
  • the Employment Equality (Religion or Belief) Regulations 2003
  • the Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003
  • the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006
  • the Equality Act 2006, Part 2
  • the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2007

It’s in some ways sad that this needs to exist at all but thank goodness it does.

In other news Tracy shares an article from Business Insider regarding homeworking during Covid19 and Heather highlights an article regarding Lasting Power Of Attorney for business.

Our discover section sees Heather waxing lyrical about Dame Stephanie (Steve) Shirley in a CMI webinar called  A Whole New World, How The World Has Changed Since Lockdown while Tracy delves deeper into the work of Willemein Brand in another book entitled Visual Doing.

And finally, our profile this week is of a lady who started out as a TV presenter but soon achieved acclaim as a STEM ambassador and founder of TeenTech Maggie Philbin.
