Computer Weekly’s Hall of Fame
Congratulations to our COO, Sheila Flavell CBE, on being admitted to the Computer Weekly, ‘Most Influential Women in UK Tech’ Hall of Fame, recognising women who have made a lifelong commitment to the Tech industry.
Women represent half of the population but do not account for half of the IT workforce, meaning there is still more work to be done. Through Sheila’s leadership, FDM will continue to work towards bridging the gap and championing women in tech.
Congratulations, Sheila! Thank you for all you have done for FDM and women in our industry.
