As a proud sponsor, Coderus attended the third continual year of the DevelopHER awards, hosted in Norwich.
An exceptional evening was spent celebrating and recognising women in tech. Four members of the Coderus team were there, not only to support but to be a part of the shared vision for gender equality in technology.
At the annual, non-profit award ceremony, that not only recognises but rewards the great achievements of women in the tech sector, the team were astonished by the inspirational talks from former winners and all their achievements over the past year. One of the talks that definitely stood out was Hazel Cottrell’s. Hazel runs her own successful business within the tech sector and she is heavily involved in giving back to the community. Hazel was the overall winner of the DevelopHER Award last year and the wide variety of charity projects that she organises is definitely an inspiration for all of us.
In a very well organised ceremony, the award categories varied; from technical categories such as Tester and Game Development to the more creative Digital Marketer and Inspirational.
While promoting gender equality in the tech industry, it was great to see a strong male presence, from proud husbands, friends and colleagues.
Beyond the great cause of the awards, the evening was also a great opportunity for friends and colleagues to gather together, network, inspire the next generation, embrace the endless possibilities of technology, and most importantly, work collaboratively for a shared vision of gender equality.
Mark Thomas, Coderus CEO said:
Coderus is not just a software development company, it is a company with an active involvement to the community. We like to give back and embrace great initiatives such as this one from Vickie. At Coderus we are firm believers that development has no barriers and we should encourage more women to get actively involved.
Vickie Allen, the founder of the Awards said:
We are entirely sponsorship funded so a massive thank you to our sponsors who make the whole event possible!
At Coderus we are dedicated to make a difference locally. We do this by supporting charitable organisations that inspire young people such as the Creative Computing Club Charitable Foundation and the wider community like SyncIpswich, hosting live stream events, and engaging education. Moreover, with our wide range of memberships and accreditations within the company gives each Coderus employee the opportunity to achieve in range of professional qualifications.
Congratulations to all the nominees and the final winners for the impact they have within the tech sector and their amazing work. Coderus will keep supporting the DevelopHER awards and other fantastic events that support and help the local community.
