From Anthropologist to Software Developer

We chat with Leanne a group lecture about how she got into a career in digital.

This lecture took place on 22nd August, 2019 at Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen.


Lianne Potter

Lianne is an award winning, self-taught software developer who retrain into the exciting world of tech following a career change as a project lead.

She developed a passion for tech equality while working for a crisis project where she witnessed first-hand a digital divide for those accessing online services and wide-spread digital literacy gaps. This went on to inform her Masters in Anthropology where she formally researched this issue.

Lianne works at NHS Digital at NHS.UK, the UK’s biggest health website, as a developer and cyber security champion on the graduate training scheme. Outside of her role, she organises code clubs for non-technical NHS Digital staff to support digital inclusion across the organisation and is an active member of the Women’s Network.
