“The FDM everywoman in Technology Awards are both a recognition and a celebration of the impact women are having on the technology industry worldwide and the diverse, fulfilling, and exemplary careers that women can have in technology,” said Maxine Benson MBE, co-founder of everywoman. “Over the past 14 years, the accomplishments and stories of these talented women have inspired future generations to pursue a career in an industry where women are underrepresented.”

“Jackie and the other winners are role models whose remarkable achievements showcase the vital advancements technology has in saving, transforming, and improving lives, while also positively impacting the planet and ensuring the future of tech grows ever more diverse and inclusive.” 

“The representation of females in the sector still has a long way to go before women are no longer considered the minority in the industry,” said Sheila Flavell CBE, Chief Operating Officer of FDM Group. “A challenge we continue to face is showcasing more female role models to inspire and encourage future generations to choose a career in tech.”

“It is more important than ever to shine a spotlight on the exceptional female talent that has contributed to the growth of the tech industry, paving the way for others to follow.”
