Rosemary StarkThe finalists in the annual 2014 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards were announced on Monday 10 February – see WITsend in ComputerWeekly.com. The awards celebrate female talent in the technology sector, whether as scientific innovators, rising stars within technology businesses, founders of tech start-ups or IT leaders in FTSE100 companies. Rosemary Stark, Capgemini Head of Banking, has been nominated in the category of “Leader of the Year” in a corporate organisation.

Other finalists in this very strong category include senior execs from Lloyds Banking Group and American Express.
 
Before joining Capgemini in 1996, Rosemary worked as an economic analyst for what was then the Scottish Office. She took over responsibility for one of our major bank clients in 2008, growing that business significantly. In January 2013, Rosemary took on the running of our UK banking business. She currently manages a multi-discipline team spread across eight countries, including the US, India, the Netherlands, Singapore, South Africa as well as the UK. An Economics and English Literature graduate of Glasgow University, Rosemary and her family live in Glasgow.
 
Maxine Benson MBE, Co-Founder of everywoman said, “Technology offers a hugely varied and rewarding career path, and one many women do not want to leave. Ninety-five percent of the women who attended our 2013 everywoman in Technology Academies felt they were able to fulfil their career aspirations within the sector. With the increase of jobs in tech opening up in the future, organisations need to reach out to the female 50% of the population and many forward-thinking companies are doing just that.

“The incredible women announced as finalists today are the role models we need to encourage more women to fulfil their career aspirations in IT and we wish them all the best of luck at the awards ceremony next month.”
 
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on 19 March, 2014 at the Sheraton, Park Lane, London.
