techUK President Wins Advocate of the Year Award

A number of techUK members and partners took home awards at the annual Women in IT Awards, the world’s largest tech gender diversity event.

Last night, over a thousand entrepreneurs, business, technology and public sector leaders came together to celebrate women in tech and the achievements they have made in the last year.

techUK’s President, Jacqueline de Rojas, won “Advocate of the Year” for her tireless work on diversity, alongside her work on the Government’s Digital Economy Council and her position as Digital Leaders chair.
