A local software developer and consultant has been shortlisted as a 'Future Star' of the industry.
C5 Alliance's Katy Hughes is in the running for the prize in the developer category of the Future Stars of Tech Awards, which aim to celebrate, inspire and empower the next generation of technology leaders.
As women occupy just 16% of IT jobs in the UK and make up less than 14% of Chief Information Officers, Future Stars of Tech wants to help promote female representation in the technology industry by identifying and promoting the industry’s top female career climbers.
Ms Hughes is one of eight finalists in the ‘Future Star: Developer’ category, which recognises women who have been part of a successful development project that has been rolled out within an organisation.
She was praised for her ability to deliver a significant and very successful digital transformation project for a local public sector organisation.
“Congratulations to Katy on being shortlisted for this national award, it is a huge achievement and well deserved. Katy took ownership of the project and worked closely with the client to design the replacement system and, as a result, the project was a great success," Director of Professional Services at C5 Alliance, Michael Bateman, said.
"At 25 years old, Katy has already achieved a tremendous amount in her career and there is no doubt that she will continue to excel and progress further, shaping the course of the company and industry as she goes.”
The winners will be announced at an event in London on 30 September.
