The awards, hosted by business technology magazine Information Age, celebrate the achievements of female executives in the male dominated technology industry. The event is also supported by BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT), techUK and the Guardian.
The secretary of state for education and minister for women and equalities, Nicky Morgan, congratulated the finalists:
“Well done to all of the women who have been nominated for the Women in IT Awards. You are all fantastic role models and ambassadors for young people looking to study STEM subjects. I am sure you will inspire other women to follow in your foot steps and pursue a career in technology.”
The winners are announced on 25 January at a ceremony at Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
