Debbie Forster MBE at the TechWomen100 Awards

To round off the evening, the Editors Choice Award was given to Debbie Forster MBE, Tech Talent Charter. Speaking of her award, Forster said, "I say this to every woman who carries the imposter, who feels that they don't deserve to be here, we all deserve to be in the room, we all deserve to be here, and we're going to change the world."

To close the night, guests were treated to a performance from Britain’s Got Talent Golden Buzzer Winners, Revelation Avenue, and invited to network, pose for photos against the TechWomen100 letters and celebrate their achievements.

Delegates at WeAreTechWomen conference

WeAreTechWomen, the technology arm of WeAreTheCity, hosted its fourth full-day conference for female technologists at etc. venues, Bishopsgate, London.

The conference, proudly sponsored and supported by Dell Technologies, saw over 500 attendees from across the technology sector and range of companies including Sky, Amazon, HSBC, Visa, Spotify, ASOS, Tesco, Goldman Sachs, DWP, BT and many more.

The conference was aimed at women in the tech sector who were looking to broaden their technology horizons, learn new skills and build their technology networks.

Facilitator Kate Russell, Journalist, Tech Reporter & Author, BBC Click, kicked off the day and welcomed all the delegates. The morning began with a number of keynotes from speakers such as Dr Pippa Malmgren, Founder, H Robotics; Sheridan Ash, Technology and Investments Director and Women in Technology Leader, PwC; Emma Kendrew, Intelligent Engineering Services Lead, Accenture Technology UKI; and Rob McCargow, Director of AI, PwC.

Across the day, delegates enjoyed listening to a number of high-profile speakers including Deborah O'Neill, Head of UK Digital, Partner, Oliver Wyman; Lopa Ghosh, Associate Partner, UKI Cyber Leader, People and Culture Lead, EY; and Caroline Criado Perez OBE, Writer, Broadcaster and award-winning feminist campaigner, author of Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men.

During her talk, Caroline highlighted the issue that gender inequality is more prevalent throughout technology than most realise, with data collection being designed around men.

Caroline went on to discuss that having a female body has led to women often being involved much less frequently than men in medical studies, resulting in a data gap that is impacting our understanding of health care in relation to women. The consequences of data bias is substantial with women often being incorrectly diagnosed because the symptoms for females often look different from those of males.

During the lunch break, delegates were treated to refreshment and had the chance to network with sponsors, browse tables and stands of tech-related products, as well as connect with a number of not-for-profit organisations including Autistica, Raspberry Pi, TechSheCan and Apps for Goods.

Throughout the day, attendees heard about artificial intelligence, big data, cyber security, tech innovation, payments, disruption, cloud technology, transformation, software engineering, and health tech.

Attendees were also invited to put their questions to speakers during a number of Q&A sessions. Topics ranged from increasing diversity in tech, career advice and flexible working.

The afternoon consisted of delegates attending their own chosen elective sessions to partake in hands-on activities and interactive workshops. Alexa, coding, payments, health tech, and data science were just some of the topics covered within the sessions.

WeAreTechWomen unveils next generation of female tech talent with TechWomen50 Awards winners

Tech Women 50 award winners

WeAreTechWomen is proud to announce the winners of the 2017 TechWomen50 Awards.

The winners of these awards showcases remarkable women within the technology sector covering a wide range of roles such as software engineers, Java developers, security engineers, students and college lecturers.

The winners also include individuals from leading firms such as SONY, IBM, BAE Systems, O2, Mastercard and Amazon.

Alongside the individual TechWomen50 category, we are also pleased to announce the winners of the TechWomen50 Champions, Company of the Year and Network of the Year.

Recent statistics have revealed just how much more there is to do to encourage women into the UK technology sector.

Currently, only 17 per cent of employees in the UK technology sector are women; only one in six school leavers starting a degree in computer science in 2016 was female and the total number of girls taking either ICT or computer science at GCSE fell by 12 per cent in the same year.

Since September 2017, WeAreTechWomen has been searching the UK for the best female tech talent in the country. The TechWomen50 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 the future generations of tech talent.

In its inaugural year, the awards were entered by over 500 nominations from across the UK and Northern Ireland and judged by a panel of 20 industry experts. Over 15,000 public votes of support were received for the 100 shortlisted nominees.

Speaking about the awards, Mark Kimber, Chief Information Officer, Worldpay said, “I have been working in technology for more than 20 years and I am pleased to say we have come a long way in building an inclusive working environment for women and men. I know we can do more and that’s why the WeAreTechWomen 50 awards is important.”

“They showcase great technologists working across our industry who are making a difference, building an environment for the future and shaping the way we build our tech community.”

Kayleigh Bateman, Head of WeAreTechWomen, added: “Over the course of my career, I have seen some truly talented and inspirational women who have been recognised by a multitude of awards. However, there is not one awards series that focuses on the next generation of female talent as a whole, or those who support these individuals.”

“Our hope is that by recognising not just our shortlist of 100, but also those that champion women in tech too, we can encourage more organisations to follow their lead.”

The TechWomen50 Awards were kindly supported by Worldpay, SAP, Verizon, Amazon, Barclays, Bloomberg, Capgemini, Deloitte, EY, Oliver Wyman, PwC, Santander and is partnered by IT Pro, Streets Consulting and Kaleidoscope.

We would personally like to thank our judges who all gave up their valuable time to assemble our winners and to help WeAreTechWomen recognise the fantastic achievement of all of our amazing nominees.

Once again, we would like to congratulate all our winners and extend a sincere thanks to everyone who supported the TechWomen50 Awards during 2017.
