The DevelopHER Awards 2017 will take place at The Corn Exchange in Cambridge on the 29th November
The DevelopHER Awards is an annual not for profit awards ceremony recognising women who work in the technology sector in East Anglia. In 2015 we ran a fantastic evening in Norwich with over 150 attendees, having had over 130 nominations across 11 categories. In 2016 we grew on that success moving the event to Ipswich, with over 200 attendees.
The awards were inspired by the team at Norwich based SyncDevelopHER, who run regular meet-ups hosting female role models speaking about their experiences in tech and encouraging more women to join their growing community.
SyncDevelopHER’s founder, Vickie Allen, is the force behind the awards and since East Anglia’s addition to the Tech Nation map, she is keen to build an East Anglian network, so this year the awards are being held in Cambridge.
The DevelopHER awards aims to raise the profile of women in technology in East Anglia, creating role models to inspire the next generation to become developers, technicians, project managers, testers and digital experts. If you and your company would like to get involved we’d love to hear from you. You can nominate a woman working in tech, sponsor a package, attend the event or volunteer and get involved.
