June Angelides is a former Tech Banker who started Mums in Technology in 2015 whilst on her second maternity leave from Silicon Valley Bank. Having been immersed in the tech world, she felt a natural inclination to explore digital skills during her time off.

Mums in Technology is the first child-friendly coding school in the UK. The company is on a mission to open up the world of tech to people who would ordinarily feel excluded from it and empowering them with the tools to become a part of it. June is a passionate advocate of the rights of Mums, active Mentor, advisor and Tech London Advocate.
