Computer Weekly announces its top 50 list of the most influential women in UK IT

Computer Weekly has announced its list of the 2016 most influential women in UK IT, now in its fifth year.

The list was originally launched to showcase the number of great women involved in the IT industry in technology and digital roles.

In 2015, the number of women featured on the list increased from 25 to 50 as the amount of nominations continued to rise each year.

Taking top spot on the 2016 list is TeenTech CEO Maggie Philbin, who has tirelessly campaigned to give all young people an equal opportunity to express their talents and creativity through technology.

The 50 women featured on this list, as well as Computer Weekly’s Rising Stars and attendees to Computer Weekly’s annual Women in IT event, act as role models to the wider industry in promoting diversity for the technology sector.
