Show Notes

Meggie Palmer and her company PepTalkHer are closing the gender pay gap. Their incredible app leverages the power of AI to fight gender based discrepancies in pay. 

I first encountered Meggie at the Vogue Codes event in 2019. The minute I saw her on stage delivering the keynote address I knew I wanted to have her on the Females in Tech Show.  It was such a thrill to finally turn that dream into a reality!

  • How to measure your value, and keep track of your impact on the organisation (various)
