Virya Group is again a proud Sponsor of DevelopHER Awards 2017

DevelopHer Awards Logo

Why are we sponsoring the DevelopHer Awards 2017 for the second year in a row? Several reasons. As a company with as many women in our team as men (still quite a talking point in this sector) we’re always pleased to acknowledge and meet other awesome “women in tech” across East Anglia.

These Awards have a special meaning for Virya Group because their purpose aligns closely with our company’s ethos, to be generous in the sharing of knowledge, to enable others to better themselves and to reach their full potential. You can read more about our ethos here.

Attending last year’s Awards event was enjoyable and the calibre of women nominated for Awards was impressive, to say the least. We seized this as a great opportunity to network with women and men from the technology sector, so new contacts were made and future collaborations were mooted. Clearly, women in tech are a force to behold, and if you want to be part of that, reserve your tickets for the Awards event at Cambridge Corn Exchange in November!

Nominations for The DevelopHer Awards are open until Monday 4th September. There are 14 categories (including some new ones), so don’t hesitate to nominate women you know who are doing great work, including the “Unsung Heroines”.

The DevelopHER Awards recognise and reward our region’s female industry influencers, both those just beginning their careers and the more experienced. It isn’t just about women who are the public faces of their companies or brands, you can also nominate women who diligently perform vital support and enabling roles behind the scenes.

So these Awards are different in that they are not only for coders, web developers and “techies”. You could nominate a woman who runs her own successful e-commerce business, a woman in tech who has influenced or inspired you, perhaps someone who has enabled you to present a strong online presence for your own business. Or you could flag up “one to watch” and nominate a recent graduate, an industry newcomer or a great Apprentice.
We couldn’t let this moment go by without acknowledging all the women in our own team who have worked so hard in our company, and the men who find working in this diverse team a welcome pleasure. Together, they’ve helped to deliver outstanding projects and service to our clients. Thank you, team!
