​The awards had over 700 nominations from across the U.K and Ireland and 30,000 votes of support from across the globe, making the wins even more impressive. Alison MacPherson, Head of Global Technology Workforce Strategy said;


The most impactful contribution we make as colleagues and leaders is to enable everyone to bring their best authentic selves to the workplace, so that we are diverse in every sense of the word and representative of the communities in which we live and work.

The evening award ceremony was opened with a keynote address from Karen Rossi, Managing Director, Global Head of Cleared Derivatives Technology and Prime Finance Technology. The evening was truly inspirational and a great way to celebrate female talent within the technology industry.
