Supporting the DevelopHER awards

Brandex enjoyed a night out in Ipswich recently as one of the sponsors at the DevelopHER awards.

The awards help to promote the role of women in East Anglia’s tech sector.

We sponsored the wine reception for the event held at Ipswich’s Corn Exchange, which was attended by more than 200 guests. The night saw 16 winners crowned from across the region.

The awards were inspired by the team at Norwich based SyncDevelopHER, which hosts female role models to speak about their experiences in tech and encourage more women to join their growing community.

Founder Vickie Allen, a former Brandex colleague, said: “Currently only around 17% of those who work in technology are female, but statistics suggest that women may even use technology more than men in their everyday lives – so why are so few women behind the creation and development of the products they use?

“With technology becoming increasingly essential in our lives, it’s really important that we do something to address the imbalance and to try and encourage the next generation of females towards technology. After all, with a shortage of technology skills in general, there is a large proportion of the population that remains untapped. That’s why the DevelopHER awards were created.”

Chris Donaldson, Brandex Creative and Digital Director, said: “We were very happy to support Vickie with this important event. We had a very enjoyable night and it was great to see the fantastic talent on show among the winners and nominees.”
