Susie Day, Delivery Manager for Citizen Health Technology at NHS Digital yesterday said:
“It’s a real honour for the Women’s Network to be shortlisted for this fantastic award at the Women in IT awards 2020. I am very proud to see both the network and individual women across our organisation being shortlisted”.
Lianne Potter, Graduate Trainee at NHS Digital yesterday said:
“I am incredibly honoured to be shortlisted for the Rising Star award. Changing careers to cyber security after a decade as a non-technical project lead was nerve-wracking but this industry has enabled me to pursue my ambitions.
“We all have a duty in this sector to ensure the environment in which we work helps people to thrive and I will keep challenging perceptions every day, to help make this a reality.”
