Digital Leaders, the nationwide programme for promoting effective, long-term digital transformation across government, industry and charities, has announced the finalists who make up the DL100 list for 2020 and opened the public vote. We’re delighted to see several of our DigitalHealth.London Accelerator current cohort and alumni recognised in this prestigious list. Good luck to all those participating especially Edge Health, DrDoctor and MeeToo.
The independent list recognises 100 people and organisations across the UK who are leading the way in digital transformation in all sectors. Previously, the list has featured industry names such as: Sam Shah, Martha Lane-Fox, Mike Bracken, Liam Maxwell, Seyi Akiwowo, Kevin Cunnington and Eileen Burbidge.
The 100 finalists that make up the list will now compete for the public vote in one of 10 categories. This year’s list is made up of individuals and organisations with 42 private sector, 36 from the public sector, 18 from the non-profit sector and 4 from academia.
Leading by example, the DL100 list has a 50/50 gender split, recognising the diversity in digital transformation roles and the leading women across the industry.
Ten UK regions are represented in this year’s list reflecting the national reach of the Digital Leaders Community. Outside of London and the South East, the strongest regions were Scotland, the North West and Yorkshire and Humberside.
Robin Knowles, CEO of Digital Leaders, commented: “We are once again proud to see the incredible recognition of leading female role models in the DL100. As a list that is nominated from our extensive Digital Leaders network, we’re always eager to see new names and faces featured on the list, and to have achieved such a diverse mix of names from all sectors is a huge achievement for the Digital Leaders community. There are few organisations that can claim they have successfully gathered a list with 50/50 representation! We’re extremely excited to see who comes out top in our public vote!”
Russell Haworth, Chair of Digital Leaders, said: “The Digital Leaders 100 list 2020 once again highlights the progress in digitally transforming the UK. Our community of Digital Leaders have shone a light on the many hidden heroes, quietly getting on with the nation’s digital transformation. It is fabulous to see such a strong list from outside London this year reflecting our own inclusive national programme and the growing importance of digital transformation on companies irrespective of size or sector.”
