In the run up to the CRN and Computing's Women in Tech Festival UK 2019, we are exploring the personal stories of some of the tech sector's inspiring female leaders.
In this video, Computacenter's senior director of UK enterprise, Clare Parry-Jones, reflects on the expectation in her first job in the tech sector that she would wear a skirt or dress, as well as the first time she was told colleagues looked up to her eight years ago.
Being a senior woman in any organisation carries an "element of accountability and responsibility" not shared by male counterparts, Parry-Jones adds.
CRN and Computing's Women in Tech Festival UK 2019 will see 600 women come together on 17 September at The Brewery in Central London. Find out more here.
