It’s announced today that Thayer Prime has been recognised as one of the women changing the face of technology in the UK, named as finalist in the sixth annual FDM everywoman in Technology Awards in association with techUK.
FDM Everywoman says, “The three finalists listed below have been selected from a field of hundreds of applicants, chosen by a panel of senior technology leaders against criteria including career achievement, future potential and their commitment to supporting others in the industry. The winners will be revealed at an Awards ceremony on the evening of 23 February 2016 in London.
Britain’s technology economy is booming, taking up more than 10% of UK’s GDP and predicted to be in need of 1.2 million new digital workers by 2022, opportunities for women in technology and demand for their talents continues to grow. Not just in enterprise, but every growth business across all industry sectors is looking for technology talent, which is why these Awards are so vital in uncovering role models who will inspire more young women to seek a career in technology. Even more encouraging is the fact that women are now considered the largest “emerging market”, ahead of China and India, as more and more enter the workforce, creating a larger pool of fresh talent.
Over 500 industry leaders, government and the media will join the celebrations at the London Hilton on Park Lane, to find out who has won the 2016 Awards. These Awards champion and raise the profile of the individual women that are achieving success in their field, and the companies that are supporting them to do so.”
The finalists in the Entrepreneur Award category – Sponsored by ARM are:
- Lucinda Carney, CEO, Advance Change
- Saija Mahon, Founder, CEO, Mahon Digital Marketing
- Thayer Prime, CEO and Founder, Team Prime Consulting
Maxine Benson MBE, Co-Founder of everywoman comments: “We launched these awards six years ago to uncover the women doing amazing things in technology – women who were not necessarily known within their wider business let alone outside their company or the industry. By showcasing their talents and achievements, we are demonstrating the diversity of opportunity the industry offers so that more women will be inspired to bring their talents to it. Each year the judges are overwhelmed by the quality of the finalists, and 2016 is no exception; their hard work, determination and positive influence on others is staggering, and we wish them all the best at the awards ceremony next month.”
