About the speaker
Gillian Arnold FBCS
Gillian has extensive experience in the IT industry, including running her own IT Training and Diversity Recruitment company to help women find technology roles.
Gillian previously worked in a variety of roles in IBM and has supported public and private sector organisations working to increase diversity. She has been awarded the Cisco/Everywoman in Technology Award and Inclusion Inspiration of the Year Award, as well as an honorary doctorate from the University of Bath.
Gillian is a member of the Computer Weekly Hall of Fame. As BCS President, Gillian is particularly focussed on “building public trust in tech through ethics and standards, and frameworks of professionalism”, an area which has come sharply into focus due to new challenges such as the increasing use of artificial intelligence and the commoditisation of personal data.
