The Director of the School of Cybernetics, Distinguished Professor Genevieve Bell is among this year’s Top 100 Women in Technology by the Technology Magazine.
Nominated by the magazine’s readers, the women in the list are considered the world’s leading female executives and influencers in technology. The magazine issue celebrates the hard work, talent, and determination of women leaders in the male-dominated tech industry.
“The ladies on this list should be rightfully proud of their status as captains of the industry, as they forge a path into bold new areas of innovation and technological ambition,” Alex Tuck, Technology Magazine’s senior editor, said.
The magazine cites data from Deloitte Global that predict large technology firms will reach about 33 % female representation in their workforce this year—a slight uptake by two percent from 2019.
Albeit slowly, this increase is a welcome development that shows a paradigm shift in the recruitment, retention, and promotion of women in the tech industry.
This is the second time Technology Magazine published a Top 100 Women in Technology List. You can read the magazine issue here.
