"The organisations involved in today's awards are the forward-thinking companies that are already committed to that and the women we are celebrating are role models whose stories and achievements will open the eyes of more young girls to realise that studying STEM subjects can lead to an exciting, rewarding career."
One of the awards supporters is techUK, formerly Intellect. Julian David, CEO of the body, said: "We need a greater representation of the working population to join UK tech companies and help support the continued growth of the sector.
