Natalie Lineton is Head of People and Talent at notonthehighstreet, where she focuses on designing the best employee experiences for the team to realise their potential.

She is guided by her own personal values of kindness and fairness.
< MotherBoard is a community that has been created to drive positive change throughout the UK Technology and Data sectors. Creating environments that support the inclusion of working mothers offers a significant solution to the shortage of talent across the Technology and Data sectors. We’re here to educate, challenge, and create that shift. We’re not here to berate, we’re here to connect, embrace and champion positive change-makers.
Our community is open to all. Mothers working in tech, organisations who are up-skilling returners back into work as well as employers that are consciously looking to create inclusive programmes to attract mothers into their Technology and Data teams. We actively encourage females, males, and non-binary folk to join us and to get involved. >
