Chair and Chief Executive
Julie Syl is the Chief Executive of Women & Digital Inclusion, a Liverpool based community interest company that aims to enable Black African women to access digital skills and rebuild their income and lives successfully in the UK.

These are challenging times for Black and Ethnic Minorities in Britain. Especially black African women. Yet those who found a way to offer their services and products online have stayed afloat and even thrived. Every adult deserves to be able to create an income and provide for themselves and their families. Women & Digital Inclusion works with many others to end the disparity and exclusion of Black African women and the poverty that faces so many of this demographic in Liverpool UK today.
