These awards celebrate the achievements of female talent in the technology industry and recognise their significant contributions to their respective organisations.
At Interactive, we foster a culture that enables our employees to grow their careers in a meaningful way. The incredible female representation at Interactive speaks volumes to this.
It’s great to see our people being recognised for doing exceptional work. Each of our nominees has an undeniable impact on our organisation and our customers, and we are every bit stronger for it.
Let’s meet our finalists.
