    Head of HR at Alchemy, Anne O’Neill said: “Since our launch, we have been involved locally in programmes to support getting more women into tech and want to make this part of our diversity target as we recognise the importance of having more women in STEM subjects and going on to higher education to study Computer Science.

    "We recognise how the women in our organisation influence the dynamics of the group and we are lucky to have some very strong women who have taken control of their careers and are currently really adding value to our organisation.

    "As we move forward with our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme this year, diversity and inclusion will be a large part of this. As an organisation, we are committed to offering the same opportunities to all regardless of gender, race, religion and sexual orientation among others.”
