Makers has recently published the winners of its fourth annual list of up-and-coming women in the UK’s software and engineering sector.
Indeed, the company has recognized the significant contribution, growth, and innovation of 20 women within the industry during the first 10 years of their careers. As the number of women working in technology still remains a minority, it is important to highlight women leaders doing great things and changing the sector. Rewarding them also provides role models for aspiring women wanting a career in the industry.
By emphasising the importance of these women, the list is making more accessible and visible role models in the sector, encouraging women to pursue tech roles. These 20 women were chosen by professionals from Codebar, Coding Black Females, Microsoft, and The Financial Times, among others.
