In a Nutshell

The ordinary woman gets left behind in so many discussions. If it doesn't work for her, it's not working for anybody. You've not created the right system, you've not created the right process. You're only helping yourself, don't pretend that you're helping everybody.

Anne-Marie Imafidon


The lack of women in STEM fields – science, technology, engineering, and mathematics – has never been more pressing. With our world becoming increasingly technology-driven, we risk our future being molded to fit one perspective: male.

A Podcast of One's Own aims to give women in leadership a dedicated celebratory and discursive space for their achievements.

Hosted by former Australian Prime Minister and current Chair of the Global Institute for Women's Leadership Julia Gillard, this episode from November 2020 features computing prodigy Anne-Marie Imafidon.

Imafidon passed her A-Levels in computer science and mathematics at the age of 11 and was one of Oxford's youngest Master's graduates. She has gone on to become a leading figure in STEM, and champion for the next generation of girls entering the fields.

Gillard and Imafidon discuss the reasons STEM remains male-dominated, and the risks of us continuing this way.
