Derry Elemental co-founder makes Most Influential Women in Tech list for three years running

  • Elemental Co-Founder Leeann Monk-Ozgul has retained a spot on Computer Weekly's annual Most Influential Women in Tech list for a third consecutive year.

    Computer Weekly publishes its UK-wide Most Influential Women in Tech list each year, with entries nominated by industry and listed. This year's list was just released, and it looks like the co-founder of Derry-based tech for good company Elemental has done it again! Leeann Monk-Ozgul was nominated and made the list again for a third time in a row, first appearing in the 2017 edition.

    The comprehensive UK-wide list has grown in recent years as more tech industry professionals are now actively trying to promote the good work the women in their organisations are doing and the impact they're having. There were a total of 160 nominations in 2017, 200 in 2018, and now 360 nominations for the 2019 list. This will be whittled down further by Computer Weekly as they produce a top 50 shortlist and give one person a final award.

    As co-founder of tech for good firm Elemental, Leeann helps organisations globally to improve the impact of their social prescribing programmes with consultancy servies and award-winning digital social prescribing software products. It operates in areas such as health, housing, and community support where it can make a real difference with its digital solutions.

    Leeann explained the importance of the work they do at Elemental, saying: "Our social prescribing platform and any enhancements we make to it derive from real life needs and requirements that I’ve experienced and continue to experience first-hand working in the community, so it’s not just tech for the sake of tech, it’s tech for good, designed with a people first approach."

    Commenting on being listed again for a third year, Leeann said: "I’m absolutely humbled to have been shortlisted as one of the UK’s most influential women in tech for the third year running. We’ve had yet another significant year of growth since being shortlisted by Computer Weekly for the second year in 2018 and this announcement helps to further build on that momentum and wave the flag for women in tech.”
