Julie Grieve runs one of Scotland’s most exciting tech companies, supporting our tourism industry to deploy new technologies for a greater guest experience. Both tech and tourism are two industries that are the epitome of diversity – they rely on it and they embrace it. Julie’s thoughts on the value of embracing diversity are clear:
“I believe that diversity should equal choice. In life, people should be able to be who they want to be and do what they want to do without judgements based on gender or race. Equality is key because it ensures all sectors of society have a voice, leading to balanced decision making.
“Although we often joke about stereotypes I love that we are starting to see more and more role models, women athletes, TV presenters with a disability, etc. Its only through seeing something day in day out that you start seeing the person and understand that anything is possible.”
