Since August 2019, WeAreTechWomen has been searching the UK for the best female tech talent in the country. 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. This year’s winners join an alumni of 150 winners from 2018 and 2017.
Vanessa Vallely OBE, Founder 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 1000 female future leaders in technology by 2025. The response to this year’s awards has been fantastic and the calibre of entries has been outstanding! I am so proud to see so many women in tech recognised for their achievements and look forward to celebrating our winners and their achievements.”
The awards were entered by over 700 nominations from across the UK and Ireland and 40,000 votes of support from across the globe. 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.
The 2019 awards are headline sponsored by J.P. Morgan and supported by Accenture, BAE Systems, Barclays, Credit Suisse, Dell Technologies, Informed Solutions, Lloyds Banking Group, Oliver Wyman, OpenFin and Worldpay.
The winners will be invited to attend an award’s ceremony on 23 January 2020 at Queen Elizabeth II Centre, Westminster, London. Guest tickets are available to purchase here.
