I’ve been involved in the tech industry for almost half my life now and I absolutely love what I do. I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing and I consider myself blessed to be in a field that I one million percent live, breath and love (did I use the word love again). It’s always humbling to receive acknowledgements for my work and this week started off an a high note with a lovely email from the wonderful team at Inspiring Fifty saying that I have been nominated by my peers to be one of the Inspiring Fifty nominees.

What is Inspiring Fifty?

Inspiring Fifty is a Dutch based non-profit organisation that showcases inspiring female role models in the technology industry in the Netherlands, France, Europe and the Nordics. Built on the core philosophy ”If she can see it, she can be it”, Inspiring Fifty annually awards the 50 most inspiring women in the technology sector with the aim of providing a platform that brings more visibility to the achievements of women in the innovation and technology sector.

Inspiring Fifty has now partnered with the Kingdom of the Netherlands to launch the initiative on the African continent, creating the first platform of inspiring women in technology outside Europe.
