At Selesti we’re passionate about driving positive change, and part of this is by increasing the amount of women working in tech. We’re proud of our gender split being around 50/50 and our continual efforts to help all of our team train and develop.
We’re also proud to offer advice and coaching to anyone who needs help breaking into a digital career, through teaming up with local universities and charities.
That’s why the DevelopHER awards is something we’re really proud to support. The ceremony is a not-for-profit annual series of awards recognising women who work in the technology sector.
From web development to digital marketing, the women in our team have been integral to both ours and our clients success. Last year Emily from our web development team won the App Developer award thanks to her talent and skill with the latest technology - as well as being a finalist for the Tech Star award. Lily from our digital marketing team was also a finalist for the Digital Marketer award thanks to her ability to deliver award-winning digital strategy to our clients.
"We're extremely proud to sponsor the DevelopHER Awards because it recognises many of the outstanding women within the technology sector in the region," says Ollie Blackmore, our Managing Director.
"With 15 women working at Selesti (more than half the team) it's important to us that we have a diverse mix of creative, technical and commercially aware talent!"
This year we will be sponsoring the chocolate fountain which also has us very excited to attend the ceremony with some of our team members — we'll see you there!
