“I am delighted that Worldpay is continuing to support the TechWomen100 awards this year and that it’s now 100 and not just 50! There are so many women out there in a wide variety of technical positions with fantastic expertise that we want recognise and provide inspiration to others and this is a great forum to do that. I was so impressed last year with the backgrounds and achievements of all the winners and am looking forward to seeing our entrants this year.”

“There is something uniquely inspiring about a group that can create so many positive platforms for women to take part in.  It’s a privilege as a woman to have access to such a wide range of offerings and recognitions so essential in our industry and to be in a position to promote those to the next generation of female leaders.  It’s an equal honor as an employer to be in a position to affiliate BAE Systems name as a sponsor of such a well-respected organization.  Many thanks to WeAreTechWomen!”

Theresa Palmer, Global Head of D&I, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence

“Younger generations are immersed in a technology-driven existence, more start-ups are being founded by women and recruitment efforts are actively focused on identifying and nurturing female talent. Still, this industry needs many more female role models to inspire these next generations to pursue a career in tech, so it’s fantastic to see the achievements of those who have succeeded and are being recognised and celebrated with the TechWomen100 awards. Organisations such as WeAreTechWomen are crucial to making sure not only that our voices are heard, but that women are seen in the tech space, and we’re delighted to be part of it.”

“At News UK we are keen to support initiatives that highlight and celebrate inspirational female talent, which in turn will help inspire new generations of women in tech. It is testament to the talent out there that this year the awards will celebrate 100 talented women and I’m particularly looking forward to hearing the success stories and meet the new trailblazers of women in tech.”

Christina Scott, Chief Technology Officer, News UK

We are once again proud to sponsor this year’s WeAreTechWomen conference. Diversity of thinking and experience is essential in solving our clients problems and challenges. Diversity, respect and inclusion are not just the right things to focus on, they are imperative for businesses to be successful. Nowhere is this more paramount than the technology industry where we need to encourage more women to start their careers and help those already there to develop and progress to their full potential. We look forward to engaging, learning and sharing with delegates and peers from across the industry at this year’s disruptive innovation themed conference. We look forward to seeing you there.

There’s an oft-repeated expression that if you can see it, you can be it. By putting talented women on a pedestal through the TechWomen100 awards, we are inspiring girls to achieve future career success in tech. As a proud STEM education advocate, it’s a mission very near and dear to my heart. I’m delighted that Credit Suisse is a sponsor, helping to fuel the pipeline of future female technologists.”
