PCR Women of the Year 2015 was supported by Rising Star partner CompTIA.
Leanne Johnson of CompTIA gave a rousing and inspirational speech about the necessity for women to be presented – and educated – positively in IT to show that it is possible for everyone to work in whatever career they want.
The winners were chosen by a panel of eight experts, based on testimonials from each of the finalist’s colleagues, bosses, or work contacts.
This was the third annual PCR Women of the Year awards ceremony, and was positively received by everyone in the room.
PCR deputy editor Jonathan Easton said: "It is important for us to recognise and promote the achievements of women in IT and tech. If anyone thinks that we don't need ceremonies like this then they are either willfully ignorant or blind.
"But that's why we're here together. It is up to us in the room to redress the balance."
