Ivana Skerlikova | Global Decarbonization Director and Head of Green Network, Atos

Ivana SkerlikovaIvana Skerlikova is a recent winner of the Tech Women Award and the Rising Star Award in IT Category. Her passion for technology started when she was 8 years old and got her first computer – it was love at first sight! Since then Ivana has pursued a career in IT with a strong background in green tech, delivery, sales enablement, and talent management.

Her favourite motto is ”in life be a warrior, not a worrier” so she decided to join the fight against climate change. She launched the Atos Green Network in 2018 to connect like minded people and use technology to drive positive sustainable change while also collaborating with environmental charities to share best practices to protect our oceans, lands, and natural habitats.

In addition, Ivana runs an annual tech-talk competition Atos X (over 12,000 global attendees) that aims to accelerate Digital Learning and Innovation and also develop junior talents working in the ICT sector. In her spare time, she is a Mental Health First Aider for fellow colleagues, supports STEM and D&I initiatives, and also mentors an inmate in one of London’s prisons through the ANTZ Junction.
