The Top 50 Power List was launched in March 2016 as a way of ensuring women take leading roles in key decisions and thinking in relation to the UK's Northern Powerhouse. By promoting the most prominent women across all sectors, Northern Power hopes to rebalance the UK economy and realise the true potential of the North of England. In 2017, the list has been expanded to shine a spotlight on more outstanding female role models and leaders of change in the north, who continually challenge the norm and ensure that everyone they work with recognises the benefit of having a more diverse workforce.
There are too few female role models within the IT Industry and so, as Global CEO and founder of a highly successful IT company, Elizabeth uses her high profile to work tirelessly to level the playing field for women in, and those seeking to enter the sector. Under Elizabeth’s leadership, Informed has become one of the UK’s most successful and innovative Digital Transformation practices.
Speaking of being named on the Top 50 Power List, Elizabeth said;
“I’m delighted to be named as a Northern Power Women because the North has a heritage of innovation, industry and a formidable work ethic and today it is a vibrant, modern and exciting place to do business. I passionately believe that for the region to fulfil its potential, more strong and inspirational women must step up to the plate and take on key leadership roles.”
