The winners will be announced at a special event on 12th July in London featuring talks from some of the female role models that will be so important to the future diversity of the tech community.

A judging panel of employers and IT leaders from across the industry has selected a shortlist of the 25 most influential women in the IT community– and we want our readers to help select who of those should be recognised as the most influential woman in UK IT.

One day I will be on this list lol.


I'd have liked to see the links beside each name directing us to achievements, rather than to the distinguished womens'  linked-in profiles, or how do we make the decision on how influential each nominated woman is as they all have such remarkable profiles?

What may have helped for starters is a brief description on what you mean by 'influential', i.e. influential within their individual company, within their sector, or within the IT community overall? Plus, I also would have liked to see a summary of achievements for each person to compare with your definition of influence.

In the absence of the above, I'd like to vote for everyone, no one, or I could simply vote for someone I know personally, which isn't quite the aim of the competition, but which is exactly what I'm going to do.

Good luck to you all!
