Technology Category Winner 2013
I’m delighted to have won the Technology category. This industry has provided me with wonderful opportunities and I am passionate about the role it plays in society and the particular contribution that women make to it. It has long been my belief that the Technology industry provides excellent career prospects for both women and men and I hope that winning this category award will help attract more bright women to consider a career in Technology. Our industry has a lot to offer to the economy, communities and individuals and I am proud to be part of it and to have my contribution to date publicly acknowledged.

Judging Panel comment
The competition was, as always, keen for the technology award and the panel had an excellent day meeting such worthy females. The Technology Category Panel members were highly impressed with Maggie, who gave an excellent interview. Maggie has given her inimitable stamp to her new role and brought her vision to reality and at the same time empowered and inspired those around her to achieve their goals as well. An additional depth to her awareness and experience was notable since the panel met her in 2012. Maggie is a wonderful, lively and bubbly woman, consummately professional and brings a welcome breath of fresh air to the sometimes ‘geeky’ image of the technology sector. Maggie won the award due to the depth that she has brought to her role, her personal development and her development of other women, both within and outside of the organisation.
Her view of the future for the next generation of young women is also clear and she has already put programmes into place to ensure that they are able to maximise their opportunities.
