“At Barclays, we’re focused on improving gender diversity through a workplace environment and culture that enables our female colleagues to fulfil their career aspirations. For me, as a leader in technology, this means really investing in how we attract, retain and develop our female tech talent. Recognising and celebrating female technologists is fundamental towards closing the gender gap and building a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture across the industry. Barclays has been working with WeAreTechWomen since 2015 because they do a fantastic job of shining a spotlight on female role models in technology, and those who support and empower them to realise their full potential. We want to help promote, support and amplify those voices leading positive change and inspiring others, which is why we’re proud to be the headline sponsor for the 2022 TechWomen100 awards”

“As a female leader in technology, it’s important to me that I support other female leaders to succeed and celebrate their success. I’m really proud that PwC is sponsoring these awards, celebrating our future leaders and inspiring a new generation.  At PwC, we respect and value differences. We know that when people from different backgrounds and with different points of view work together, we create the most value.  By working with WeAreTechWomen we are amplifying this message and working towards our mission for women to be equal participants in creating and developing the new tech businesses, products and services that shape our world.”

“Technological decisions shaping our future are being made now, yet too few of them are being made by women at all levels. Only when women are empowered and nurtured into leadership roles will the tech sector be able to truly boast it’s improving future for everyone. This is why Huawei – together with WeAreTechWomen – is proud to recognise the achievements of 100 future female leaders who are positively impacting the tech sector and inspiring future generations to come.”

“We are extremely proud to support the incredible work that WeAreTechWomen are doing to inspire, empower and support female talent in technology. It is really important that diversity and inclusion are at the forefront within every company, and beyond this, that the wider tech community continues to champion women within the industry, advocates for greater diversity and builds a supportive network for women to thrive.”

SWATI LAY, CHIEF TECHNOLOGY OFFICER, FUNDING CIRCLE

“Recognizing, elevating and empowering women in tech is now more important than ever. The global pandemic and the continuing global labour shortage mean that the competition for top female tech talent is even more intense. Companies seeking to capitalize on a gender-diverse labour force with an expansive and inclusive perspective must provide rich and innovative opportunities for women to develop and grow. That’s why we support the TechWomen 100 awards. Celebrating the achievements of deserving female technologists is essential to creating role models to inspire and propel the diverse and female-fueled future we want to see. Only through our collective efforts can we pave the way for the next generation of STEM leaders — and fuel the all-important female talent pipeline.”

“If we continue reshaping our workplaces into environments where women from all backgrounds can succeed, then the tech sector will benefit from all the intelligence, creativity, and ambition this diversity of thought can bring. Men must be part of this transformation, because gender imbalance isn’t a problem for women to solve alone.”
