Women in Digital was created in 2014 whilst founder Holly Tattersall was working in Digital Recruitment and noticed the lack of female role models and leaders in the industry. The organisation began as a Mentoring Program that would connect high potential talent with Women at the height of their career looking to support the next generation of Digital Leaders. Women in Digital have since evolved the Mentoring Program to facilitate self service Mentor selection, and added a range of events and services for Women in the industry.
Women in Digital were proud to launch the Women in Digital awards in 2018, and see this as an important evolution to identify more industry role models, inspiring the next generation of Digital leaders.
The mission of Women in Digital is to ensure all girls and Women around the world are Digitally literate by providing resources and career opportunities to build the Digital leaders of tomorrow. They do this by connecting their talented members around the world on and offline, by showcasing inspirational role models, celebrating talented individuals through the Women in Digital Awards and facilitating Mentoring services.
