I’m very excited and proud to announce I have been nominated for inclusion in We Are Tech Women’s “TechWomen100” list for 2018 for my contribution to the technology industry.

The We Are Tech Women “TechWomen100” Awards aims to recognise women in the technology industry who are champions for women in technology and the organisations who have designed and implemented successful initiatives and programmes in order to attract, retain and develop female tech talent. By highlighting the accolades of up-and-coming inspirational female talent, the awards also aim to help create a new generation of female role models for the industry.

The “TechWomen100” awards are the first of their kind to focus solely on the female tech talent pipeline and recognise the impact of champions, companies and networks that are leading the way and are supported by leading organisations such as Worldpay, BAE Systems, Credit Suisse and Accenture.

I am absolutely delighted to find out that I have been nominated to be included in the 2018 “TechWomen100” list. Great progress is being made to help women shatter the glass ceiling and enter careers in the technology industry, and this forum is a great way of recognising and providing inspiration to other women who are considering joining the technology industry.

Nominations are open till 28 September 2018, with the shortlist announced on 5 November 2018. The winners will be announced on 10 December 2018 following a public vote.
