TechWomen100 Judges

WeAreTechWomen are proud to announce our judges for the 2021 TechWomen100 Awards!

 Judging the TechWomen100 Awards is no easy task!

Several of the judges from last year’s awards state it was one of the hardest judging activities they have ever undertaken, due to the amazing achievements of the women who were nominated. We expect this year will be no different.

For our 2021 TechWomen100 Awards, we are leveraging the extensive experience and industry knowledge of our amazing judges. Each judge has been carefully selected for their expertise or their breadth of knowledge across the technology landscape.

We are also proud to welcome back a number of our 2020 judges including Debbie Forster MBE, CEO, Tech Talent Charter; Caroline Graham, Head of Legal External Engagement, Barclays; Didem Un Ates, General Manager, Data & AI Acceleration, Customer Success EMEA, Microsoft; Rob McCargow, Director of AI, PwC; and Sheree Atcheson, Global Director of Diversity & Inclusion, Valtech.

On behalf of WeAreTechWomen, our sponsors and future nominees, we would like to sincerely thank all of our judges for their dedication to the female pipeline and for donating their valuable time to judge the TechWomen100 Awards in 2021.

The TechWomen100 Awards focus solely on women working in tech below director level. We hope that by highlighting the accolades of up-and-coming inspirational female tech talent, we can help to create a new generation of female role models for the industry, and a pipeline of future leaders.
