MarketOrders COO Recognised as Top 100 Most Influential BAME Leaders in Tech

Sukhi Jutla, Co-Founder and COO of MarketOrders has today been announced as part of the #IB100 – a list of the top 100 most influential black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) leaders in the Tech Sector.

As part of their Inclusive Tech Alliance (ITA) campaign, Inclusive Boards is calling on tech companies to implement inclusive working practices to fix the progression challenges currently facing BAME individuals from moving to senior leadership positions. This year’s #IB100 list showcases role models to encourage and inspire tech’s future BAME senior leaders.

Elizabeth Oni-Iyiola, Development Director at Inclusive Boards, said: ‘Technology is one of the fastest-growing sectors in the UK and beyond. It’s crucial that as these sectors expand so too does the level of representation within them. Sukhi Jutla and those featured today are groundbreakers, changemakers and role models within the industry and we are proud to include them in this year #IB100.’

Sukhi reacted to the news: “It is an honour to be recognised as a Top 100 BAME leader in the UK. Awards like this one I hope will continue to shine a spotlight on the amazing work the BAME community adds to the UK economy and helps to inspire the next generation of future leaders. I am grateful to everyone who has been a part of my journey supporting my dreams and that includes my incredible team at MarketOrders.net”.

Those featured in the list include the most influential leaders from tech companies such as DeepMind, Google, IBM, Larsen & Toubro Infotech, Microsoft, Monzo, Rolls-Royce, Twitter and Seedcamp.

MarketOrders named on BusinessCloud’s 301 Female Tech Trailblazers list.

 

MarketOrders is pleased to announce their co-founder and COO, Sukhi Jutla is named as a Female Tech Trailblazer by the latest list announced by Business Cloud.

 

The list is made up of everybody from household names to inspirational women at the start of a journey in tech who have the potential to change the industry. The list is published online at Business Cloud as well in the Q4 2018 print edition.

 

Chris McGuire, BusinessCloud’s editor said:

We’ve ripped up the rule book…rather than limit ourselves to 101 names on our must-read lists we’ve taken off the brakes by publishing the names of 301 female entrepreneurs and pioneers of tech. One statistic that is trotted out is that only 17 per cent of people in the tech sector are women. We need to increase the number of women working in tech and we hope that by publishing a list of 301 female entrepreneurs and pioneers of tech, they’ll become role models to the next generation.’’

 

Ram Krishnna Rao, MarketOrders CEO said:

‘I’m very proud to have a diverse team as we actively encourage and promote more women in tech at MarketOrders so it’s great that my co-founder and COO Sukhi is recognised as a tech pioneer and serves as a role model to other women considering a career in technology.’
