This week, we were over the moon to be named e-Skills Initiative of the Year at the Women in IT Awards 2018.

 

Aniela and James receive the award from Maggie Philbin and Kelly Bissell

 

The ceremony - the world’s largest tech diversity event - recognises outstanding innovation achieved by women in the IT industry.

Our Chief Executive Helen Milner and Chief Operating Officer Charlotte Murray received the joint award in recognition of our work, not only helping women to achieve success through digital but of the large-scale impact we’ve had on people from all walks of life.

Good Things Foundation’s Head of Learning Aniela Kaczmarczyk and Head of Digital James Speake were on hand to collect the award on behalf of Helen and Charlotte, from TeenTech’s Maggie Philbin and Kelly Bissell of Accenture Security.

Aniela said: "What a great night celebrating women in technology! I'm so proud that Good Things Foundation has been recognised amongst amazing initiatives that are changing the lives of women across the UK.

“At Good Things Foundation, I'm very privileged to work with amazing women who inspire and motivate me every day and it's important that we strive for everyone to have the same opportunities in life and work."

The judges said that we stood out with our relentless commitment to improving lives through digital skills.

Organisers Information Age and Vitesse Media said: " The judges were amazed by the large-scale impact the small charity has made, having helped over two million people to improve their basic digital skills and quality of life.”
