WeAreTechWomen is extremely proud to announce the TechWomen100 2018 shortlist.
Since August 2018, WeAreTechWomen has been searching the UK for the best female tech talent in the country. With the support of headline sponsor Worldpay, WeAreTechWomen has now identified a shortlist of 200.
The TechWomen100 awards are the first of their kind to focus solely on the female tech talent pipeline and to also recognise the impact of champions, companies and networks that are leading the way for future generations of tech talent.
The shortlist showcases remarkable women within technology sector covering a wide range of roles such as Machine Learning Engineer, Radio Modelling Engineer, Quantitative Analyst, Brexit Programme Manager, Radio Prototyper, and Cyber Security Consultant.
The full shortlist includes individuals from leading firms such as Amazon, Apple, EY, Fujitsu, IBM, Kurt Geiger, Lloyds Banking Group, Mastercard, Microsoft, O2 and PwC, alongside founders and entrepreneurs of tech start-ups.
Over the nomination period, we received over 500 nominations from across the UK and Northern Ireland. The calibre of entries for these awards was exceptional and all of the judges stated how difficult it was to arrive at the shortlist due to the amazing achievements of our nominees.
Speaking about the awards, Catherine Schlieben, HR Director Group Operations and Talent Acquisition, Worldpay, said, “I am delighted that Worldpay is continuing to support the TechWomen100 awards this year and that it’s now 100 and not just 50!”
“There are so many women out there in a wide variety of technical positions with fantastic expertise that we want recognise and provide inspiration to others and this is a great forum to do that.”
“I was so impressed last year with the backgrounds and achievements of all the winners and am looking forward to seeing our entrants this year.”
Vanessa Vallely, Managing Director of WeAreTechWomen said, “At WeAreTechWomen we have made it our personal mission to shine a spotlight on women working in tech.”
“Our strategic aim is to highlight 500 female future leaders in technology by 2022.”
“The response to this year’s awards has been fantastic and calibre of entries has been outstanding!”
