Emma Walker

Emma Walker is a mobile software developer at the BBC, who is happiest when you don't notice her code meaning you've experienced a beautifully seamless audio-visual playback experience. Emma is a career changer, having changed profession from Radiotherapy Physics in the NHS back in 2019, to take part in the Tech Returners and BBC Step Into Tech programme but her greatest career challenge was yet to come, at 32 she was diagnosed with cancer. 

Emma will join Reframe WIT 2022 as part of our Return To Confidence panel, here she'll share her experience of working through a life-changing diagnosis, chemotherapy, medical menopause and what we can all learn to make the workplace somewhere that can support us all better.
