Our President and members recognised in Kindness & Leadership Awards

Today, Women of the Future Programme has announced its inaugural 50 Leading Lights list, in association with Lloyds Banking Group, recognising the contribution of  kind leaders to  business, the economy and society. We are very excited that amongst those named are Jacqueline de Rojas, president of techUK, as well as techUK members Melissa Allen and Mina Shiraishi from KPMG, and Patricia Brolly and Charlotte Hogg, Visa.

We are also very happy to see leaders from Government such as Dame Sue Owen, Permanent Secretary for Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport on the list and having their contributions recognised.

’50 Leading Lights’ showcases 50 leaders building a new status quo, impacting others through kindness. The aim is to help tell their stories to inspire others and recast perceptions of ‘strong’ leadership. It is the desire that kindness generates strength in leadership, as a quality and a currency that empowers change.

techUK would like to congratulate all those named in the list this year and we look forward to seeing the impact that these awards have. These awards open a debate as to what makes effective leadership and in a fragile world, this discussion is welcome. As the awards organisers have pointed out, we too think technology will be a driving force in improving transparency and empowering consumers, employees, regulators and investors to determine the style of leadership that succeeds.
