Yasmin Ledward from Womenintech.co.uk said:
“It is clear that there are great market initiatives to encourage more women into tech and close the gender gap. We were very impressed with all of the nominations this year as each one showed a different approach to encourage women into technology. It is important to carry on recognising all the hard work employers are doing. The skills gap in technology can be dramatically closed if there is a greater and more diverse talent pool.”
