Women in IT Awards Dinner - Informed Solutions staff and guests celebrate inspiring colleagues in IT

Informed Solutions’ staff and guests celebrated Women in IT with winners and finalists, including Informed Solutions’ Group CEO Elizabeth Vega in the Entrepreneur of the Year category.

Women in IT Awards

 Informed Solutions’ staff and guests celebrated last week with winners and finalists, including Informed Solutions’ Group CEO Elizabeth Vega in the Entrepreneur of the Year category.

The event attracted a senior audience and leading advocates for diversity within the tech sector.  Informed’s team was joined by honoured guests and other strongly committed advocates of gender diversity and inclusion, including Adrienne Kelbie (Chief Executive, Office for Nuclear Regulation), Brigid McBride (Programme Director for Digital Transformation, Ofsted), Julian David (CEO, techUK), Robin Knowles (CEO and Founder, Digital Leaders Network) and Louise Stokes (Head of Online Communications, Digital Leaders Network) and Rachel Neaman (NED and former CEO of the Corsham Institute).

Elizabeth was also proudly supported at the event by colleagues from Informed Solutions, including Dr John Alderson (CEO), Lizzie Stutchbury and Dan Rex (Digital Leadership Team), and Helen Craven (Delivery Management Team).

Commenting on the importance of the Women in Tech Awards and what drives her to be a vocal and longstanding advocate of diversity within the sector, Elizabeth Vega offered:

The Women in IT Awards is now the peak industry event that recognises the growing role and importance of women within the IT industry and highlights the very significant contribution that we make to our workplaces, our industry and the economy.
It is critical to the future and success of the UK, from our own businesses through to the global competitiveness of the country, that we rebalance the IT sector’s leadership, workforce and viewpoint, particularly in ways that enable more women to have career opportunities and help bridge the very substantial STEM and digital skills gap we currently have.
For my part, I have worked hard to lead a company committed to supporting talent development for 25+ years; creating a fair and egalitarian workplace that encourages diversity in all its forms and supports people in developing their skills, capabilities and confidence. The Women in IT Awards highlight values strongly aligned with my own, underlining the need for gender equality and encouraging, developing and supporting the career ambitions of women and girls.

Chief Executive of the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) and Patron of Women in Nuclear, Adrienne Kelbie, is also a formidable advocate on the importance of diversity in her sector and within her organisation:

At ONR, diversity and inclusion is an essential, not a nice-to-have. And so it’s important to us to make sure all our strategic partners pay attention to inclusion matters and diverse teams. Therefore, we’re delighted with Liz’s nomination, demonstrating that Informed Solutions - who is helping us to modernise our regulatory systems – is, like ONR, prepared to lead the way in this area.

Robin Knowles, Founder and CEO of Digital Leaders, and a prominent male advocate of gender diversity across the tech and digital sectors, commented:

I am excited to be celebrating these amazing women with our partners at Informed Solutions. It's important to hold up exemplars in the digital sector to show that it's a normal ambition to be the best in tech for women. We definitely need to see more decent, powerful men to step up beside women in building a gender equal world as we saw 15 technology company leaders do recently in Davos.

Rachel Neaman, previously CEO of the Corsham Institute, now a Non-exec Director on various boards, and respected champion of diversity and inclusion in the tech sector, added:

Events like the Women in IT awards shine a much-needed light on the importance of diversity in the tech industry. If the tech of the future is to meet the needs of all our citizens, those creating it need to reflect the broadest range of views, beliefs and capabilities.
