TechWomen100 Award Winners 2022


WeAreTechWomen have announced the winners of their 2022 TechWomen100 Awards, shining a spotlight on over 100 incredible women in tech.

This year’s winners include Johanna Waite, Programme Manager of the multi-award winning TechUP initiative, based at Durham University, which trains women from minority groups into tech careers; Isabel Straw, part time Emergency Doctor in the NHS who also completed a PhD in Artificial Intelligence at University College London (UCL), focusing on evaluating discriminatory biases in medical algorithms; and Dayo Akinrinade, who built a social audio app to democratise access to mentorship and create a diverse community centred on knowledge sharing.

Now in their sixth year, the TechWomen100 Awards focus on females working in tech below director level. The awards also recognise senior individuals championing women; organisations working to recruit and retain female tech talent; and voluntary organisations and networks operating across the UK.

This year’s awards attracted over 1,000 entries from which a diverse panel of 20 independent industry judges identified a shortlist of 200. The public was then asked to show its support by voting for these incredible women. A second round of judging by the panel resulted in 100 winners being chosen alongside the overall winner of the public vote. All winners will come together to celebrate their achievements at the prestigious TechWomen100 Awards dinner on 6th December.

Speaking about the award’s, Vanessa Vallely OBE, Managing Director of WeAreTechWomen said, “I would like to extend a huge congratulations to this year’s winners of the TechWomen100 Awards.”

“Women represent only 17% of the tech industry and that figure has remained stagnant for the past eight years.”

“By highlighting these incredible women and their achievements, we hope to create much-needed role models for the future.”

“Women who will pay it forward, create communities, support each other and use their platforms to encourage more women and girls into the industry.”

“My hope is that their employers continue to support their careers by opening doors of opportunity enabling them to shine.”
