Technology and Investments Director,
Sheridan Ash is the Technology and Investments Director and Women in Technology Leader for PwC UK. Sheridan’s career has taken anything but a conventional route, after leaving school at 16 with few qualifications, having undiagnosed dyslexia, she was spotted by an agent and entered the world of runway modelling. She completed her first degree in her 20s and has worked her way up ever since. Sheridan commissioned PwC’s Women in Tech:Time to close the gender gap research which tells us that a lack of female role models in technology is a barrier to more females joining the sector. Sheridan is personally playing her part in raising this issue, but also using her experiences to act as a role model by appearing in the media and at events to champion the benefits that an inclusive and diverse workforce can bring. This includes appearing on BBC News to discuss the importance of role models. Sheridan has more recently founded The Tech She Can Charter which is backed by over 70 organisations.
