MI6 Chief: Spy agency needs more women in technology, not more James Bonds
The Women in IT Awards was a night of celebration, promoting collective dialogue around diversity among key industry leaders. CBR donned its finery last night to join a room full of accomplished women in tech celebrate those who are leading the diversity charge in the IT industry. Kicking off the night of achievement, MI6 Chief Sir Alex Younger made a rare public appearance to address the crowd about diversity and the outstanding contribution made by female technologists. The MI6 Chief took the opportunity to promote an increased focus on diversity in the agency, and revealed that the real-life equivalent of James Bond’s tech expert ‘Q’ is female.
“So, this is why I have a more practical consideration which is that if any of you would like to join us… The real-life Q is looking forward to meeting you and I’m pleased to report that the real-life Q is a woman.”
“The more different people you have in the room, in these high-pressure circumstances in which we operate, the better the decisions. So, success for me is a deeper, broader range of technological skills in MI6 and more diversity, in particular more women.”
“My message is a simple one: we need the best talent from the widest range of backgrounds to counter the threats facing this country and to seize the opportunities presented by modern Technology.”
