The eBook platforms many of the sector’s most prominent female digital leaders who are blazing a trail across their respective sectors
Digital Business Ireland, the country’s leading representative body for online businesses has today announced the publication of its ‘Empowering Enterprise, Furthering Females’ eBook, which platforms some of the sector’s most prominent female leaders. The initiative forms part of the representative body’s wider International Women’s Day campaign, including the announcement of a new partnership with female-led organisation, Guaranteed Irish.
The eBook is available to download on Digital Business Ireland’s website and features a host of trailblazing women, working at the helm of some of the country’s most pre-eminent businesses and organisations – including permanent tsb, .IE, Checkout.com, and Orbidal – among others. Each of the women profiled has been at the forefront of innovation across their respective sectors. The eBook also platforms Stella Power of Annertech, who was the recent recipient of the ‘Women in Digital’ award, at the representative body’s National Digital Awards 2021.
Since its foundation in 2019, Digital Business Ireland has worked in tandem with its partners, in providing learning and networking opportunities for female entrepreneurs working across the digital sector – including its female mentoring initiative launched last year and supported by former Enterprise Minister and gender equality advocate, Mary Mitchell O’Connor. In addition, the representative body provides advocacy services and industry insights through its Advisory Council.
Speaking today, Secretary General of Digital Business Ireland, Lorraine Higgins said:
“I am really pleased to launch Digital Business Ireland’s ‘Empowering Enterprise, Furthering Females’ eBook to mark International Women’s Day. The theme for this year’s IWD campaign is #BreakTheBias, and arguably, this message has never been more pertinent”.
“Our eBook profiles some of the sector’s most distinguished and emerging female digital leaders, and offers a platform through which to acknowledge their achievements and champion their career trajectories. The breadth of talent in the digital sector in Ireland is simply inspiring, and these women are at the forefront of that momentum”.
“International Women’s Day offers us a chance to reflect both on the progress that we have made, but equally, on the challenges which lie ahead. Across all facets of society, we need to see more women being elevated to leadership roles, and we must encourage greater senior participation among women in the digital and technology sectors. We have strength in numbers and we have power in our experiences – now, we must activate these assets and push for progress”.
