We’re extremely proud of our Consultancy Director, Claire Thorpe, who has been nominated as a finalist in this year’s DevelopHER Awards.
This is the first time we have entered these awards, and we’re incredibly happy for Claire as she has been recognised within the User Experience category. Her nomination recognises the hard work and passion that she puts into ensuring that the end user is always kept in mind during any website development process.
We’re also incredibly excited to see an initiative such as the DevelopHER Awards gain credibility and raise its public profile. The awards were only launched three years ago and have been successfully celebrating women in East Anglia who are working within the technology sector. By shining a spotlight on the women working in a traditionally male-dominated field, it’s proving to be a great example to future generations of how innovative and creative the tech sector can be.
This is a cause which is extremely close to Claire’s heart – she firmly believes that women should see the wide range of career opportunities which are available within the technology sector. As part of her passion for the subject, Claire has recently signed up to become a STEM Ambassador and will be working with local schools and colleges to raise awareness of how girls can get involved in tech-related careers.
Claire has been incredibly modest about her achievement, and simply says “It’s going to be very stiff competition from the other two nominees, but it is a nice honour to be shortlisted”.
Of course, we believe that Claire should win, and we’ll be celebrating with her in full when she finds out during a gala night reception which will be held in Norwich on the 28 November.
We’ve got our fingers crossed for her!
