Our awards aim to acknowledge the efforts of women across all areas of technology

As a sponsor this is an ideal opportunity to get exposure to around two hundred tech professionals

We are provisionally planning to run the DevelopHER Awards 2021, subject to restrictions. If restrictions prevent us from running the event we will postpone to a date in early 2022.

About the DevelopHER Awards

The DevelopHER Awards is an annual not for profit awards ceremony recognising women who work in the technology sector in East Anglia. In 2015 we ran our first fantastic evening in Norwich with over 150 attendees, having had over 130 nominations across 11 categories. Having grown the event ever since we now run our awards every year in either Norwich, Ipswich or Cambridge. After a forced hiatus in 2020, in 2021 we return to Cambridge, and cannot wait to celebrate with you all once again.

The awards were founded and are run by Vickie Allen, who regularly attends and speaks at events promoting gender equality and is passionate about creating a better, more equal future in the technology industry.

The DevelopHER awards aims to raise the profile of women in technology in East Anglia, creating role models to inspire the next generation to become developers, technicians, project managers, testers and digital experts. If you and your company would like to get involved we’d love to hear from you. You can nominate a woman working in tech, sponsor a package, attend the event or volunteer and get involved.


Definitely the proudest moment of my career


Seeing my nomination of Andrea go up there to take the agile award was definitely the proudest moment of my career so far and Andrea was totally shocked. She's berating herself for not having a better thank-you speech ready!

Location - Cambridge

The DevelopHER Awards 2021 will be held in Cambridge. Held in the Cambridge Corn Exchange in the heart of Cambridge. Just a short walk from Cambridge rail station and with public car parks available within a short distance, the venue is ideal for both those based in Norwich and those coming from further afield.
