Narjiss Fathi Wins Globant's Award for Best UK Digital Leader
Every year Globant hosts awards to showcase the talent in the technology sector in the Women That Build Awards, as only 12% of women make up the technology sector and as we move to a more diverse and equal world inspiring other women to follow in leaders footsteps is important. The focus of the Globant Awards – Women that Build is an award that seeks to recognise women who have made their careers in technology, who manage innovation and collaboration, and promote diversity and inclusion.
Over 70,000 women from 27 different countries are nominated for 4 award categories, and this year the UK winner for the UK’s Digital Leader award went to an incredible woman, Narjiss Fathi who is the Head of Delivery here at Cirrico.
