Founded in 2014 by Nikki Cochrane and Kathryn Tyler, Digital Mums is an online training company, specialising in getting mums in the UK job-ready with in-demand digital skills, so they can find rewarding roles that sync with family life. To date, Digital Mums has trained over 1,800 mums with 4 in 5 going onto find rewarding, flexible work.
“Digital Mums is proud to be a Founding Member of ITA. ITA’s mission to increase gender and ethnic diversity in the UK tech scene and to deal with the digital skills shortages across the country mirrors our own reasons for founding Digital Mums. Our whole business ethos is founded on promoting diversity in the workplace, in particular the 54,000 mums who are forced out of jobs each year because of maternal discrimination. At the same time, we recognise the lack of digital skills holding so many UK small businesses back. That’s why we are committed to empowering as many women as possible with work that works around their children and upskilling them with the in-demand digital skills that so many businesses are crying out for. We’re very much looking forward to working with the ITA and fellow members to help improve diversity in the UK tech scene.”
