The Women in IT Awards are organised by business-technology magazine, Information Age, and aims to showcase the achievements and innovation of women in technology, identifying new role models and promoting further dialogue around diversity among industry influencers.
Susie Day, Delivery Manager for Citizen Health Technology at NHS Digital said:
“It’s a real honour for the Women’s Network to be shortlisted for this fantastic award at the Women in IT awards 2020. I am very proud to see both the network and individual women across our organisation being shortlisted”.
Lianne Potter, Graduate Trainee at NHS Digital said:
“I am incredibly honoured to be shortlisted for the Rising Star award. Changing careers to cyber security after a decade as a non-technical project lead was nerve-wracking but this industry has enabled me to pursue my ambitions.
“We all have a duty in this sector to ensure the environment in which we work helps people to thrive and I will keep challenging perceptions every day, to help make this a reality.”
