Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.

The FDM everywoman in Technology Awards were launched in 2011 to recognise, celebrate and encourage the talented females within the technology industry, and showcase them as the role models they are. Our Project Group Manager, Cheryl has been announced as a finalist for Team Leader of the Year in an SME and we couldn’t be more proud! Her passion for technology, success in her career and encouragement of other women in the industry are all being recognised.

Just to be nominated for the award was such a huge compliment to Cheryl, so she is thrilled to be a finalist. She said; “I was so pleased when I found out I’d been shortlisted.  The interview seemed to go really well and it was great to meet women nominated in a number of the other categories.  To say I was chuffed to make the final four would be an understatement”.

The awards luncheon and ceremony is set to take place on Tuesday 19th March at the Savoy Hotel, London. Angela Lamont, television and radio presenter, writer and conference host will be the compere for the afternoon which will celebrate the achievements of women across the industry.

After the winners are revealed and the awards are given out, a charity raffle is being held in order to raise money for everywoman’s partner charity Wellbeing of Women. The charity is dedicated to improving the health of women and babies, to make a difference to everybody’s lives today and tomorrow.

Cheryl is both nervous and excited about the ceremony itself but whether she wins or not, we all hope the awards fulfil their purpose of supporting women in technology. Assigning her success largely to her Web Apps family, Cheryl wanted to thank Craig, our Chief Executive for his continuous encouragement and support.
