DevelopHER UX Award nominations for 2017

What is DevelopHER?

The DevelopHER awards are all about recognising the contribution of women who work in technology, inspiring the next generation to join them. Across the land there are women making their mark in technology and DevelopHER wants to help them shine:

“We know working in the technology doesn’t only mean developers and our awards aim to acknowledge the efforts of women across all areas of the industry.”

They say:

“Do you know a designer who makes the web look like a Michelangelo, a developer whose code give you goose bumps? A UX designer who knows what the visitor wants before they do or a project manager who can make even the most surly team into a well oiled machine?  Nominate them now.”
