Women in Data UK is thrilled to announce the awardees of the Twenty in Data and Technology collection for 2019 in collaboration with N Brown. This collection of twenty phenomenal women encompasses every level of seniority and data discipline, and continues to make role models visible in the industry. We recognise that each individual is a role model, and we are proud to celebrate the breadth of female talent and their personal stories to help inspire the next generation.
The 2019 Women in Data UK collection is characterised by red, which signifies confidence, ambition and drive. Red is the colour of strength and vitality.
There are positive signs, with an increase in girls studying STEM subjects in 2019, however, despite our best efforts, men continue to enter the data industry at four times the rate of women. This insight has led Women in Data UK to extend its focus to the grassroots to promote the advantages of studying STEM, and the wonderfully diverse careers these disciplines afford, by launching “Girls in Data UK” in January 2020.
We hope you have been inspired to aim higher in your careers and have an even greater impact around the globe. Together we can change the face of data and technology.
