The DevelopHer Awards – Celebrating Women In Technology 30 November 2016

June 23, 2016


The DevelopHER Awards is an annual not-for-profit awards ceremony recognising women who work in the technology sector in East Anglia. The awards are an opportunity for Ipswich and Suffolk to join in the work that Norwich’s SyncDevelopHER team is doing to build the tech community across East Anglia.  Founder Vickie Allen is keen to draw our whole region together.

This year the event will be hosted in Ipswich at The Corn Exchange in the town centre on 30th November.

There are many ways you can get involved:


Across the land there are women making their mark so help them shine!

Working in technology doesn’t only mean developers – the awards aim to acknowledge the efforts of women across all areas of the industry. Do you know

The 2015 event was a fantastic evening in Norwich with over 150 attendees, having had over 130 nominations across 11 categories (from Testers to Project Managers, Digital Marketers and of course Developers). They saw 17 companies from Norwich, Ipswich and further afield sponsoring the event that included Google, Crafted and Anglia IT.

It was great to see women in various tech roles from across East Anglia being acknowledged for the great work they do. Some of the money raised has been used to run a code club to inspire the next generation of developers.
