MarketOrders Co-Founder, Sukhi Jutla, was recently named as one of the UK’s top 100 Women in Tech. She recieved her award on Thursday 31 January during the awards ceremony taking place at the London County Hall, London.
The award’s celebration was an opportunity to meet and network with other winners, sponsors and judges; enjoy a three-course meal, wine and champagne reception to toast achievements.
The evening was facilitated by Kate Russell, BBC Click, Journalist, Tech Reporter and Author. The special guest speaker was Chi Onwurah, Labour MP for Newcastle upon Tyne Central and Shadow Minister for Industrial Strategy, Science and Innovation.
Only two days after receiving its certificate as a Top 100 European Digital Pioneer by The Financial Times and Google, Sukhi Jutla couldn’t be prouder: “I’m honoured to be named as a Top 100 Woman in Tech in the UK. The UK is one of the best places to launch your tech career and I hope this award continues to inspire more women into tech careers and show you can make a huge and lasting impact”.
Since September 2018, WeAreTechWomen has been searching the UK for the best female tech talent in the country. They received over 500 nominations from across the UK and Northern Ireland and 28,000 votes of support from across the globe. The calibre of entries for these awards was exceptional and all of the judges stated how difficult it was to arrive at the shortlist due to the amazing achievements of the nominees.
Vanessa Vallely OBE, Founder of WeAreTechWomen said, “At WeAreTechWomen we have made it our personal mission to shine a spotlight on women working in tech. Our strategic aim is to highlight 500 female future leaders in technology by 2022. The response to this year’s awards has been fantastic and calibre of entries has been outstanding! I am so proud to see so many women in tech recognised for their achievements and look forward to celebrating our winners and their achievements.”
