DevelopHER Awards 2015

DevelopHER Awards 2015

August 6, 2015

Tipsy & Tumbler has had the pleasure of sponsoring SyncDevelopHER since it was founded in 2013 by Junior Web Developer, Vickie Allen.

The aim of this Norwich based community is to promote gender equality within the thriving tech community of East Anglia. SyncDevelopHER holds a free meetup once a month. Open to both men and women, the event allows those with a common interest in tech to get together and attend talks on a range of topics, from “Corporate to startup and back again” to “How the world needs open source”. These are all delivered by women who have had a hand in breaking down the barriers of gender inequality in IT, with the aim to inform and inspire. SyncDevelopHER is becoming increasingly recognised as a key part of the East Anglian tech community. It was recently featured in the Eastern Daily Press and this media coverage only proves how important it is that we continue to break down stereotypes and bring equality to this industry.

On 25th November 2015, SyncDevelopHER will be hosting their DevelopHER Awards in the Kings Centre, Norwich. This awards event is an opportunity for females working in the industry to be celebrated for the amazing work they have done over the years. With twelve different categories (each sponsored by a company within the industry), the public are urged to nominate someone they feel deserves to be recognised. The nominees are then reviewed and winners chosen in November by a panel of judges, including our very own Creative Director, Hannah Tometzki.

As SyncDevelopHER is funded entirely by sponsors such as ourselves, any crowdfunding advertising is appreciated. Posters promoting the different awards can be found on the DevelopHER awards website and are freely available for anyone to download and pin up around the community.

Nominations will close on the 3rd September 2015 so make sure you nominate a woman that has been an inspiration to you as soon as possible.
