Anahita Mahmoudi: Rising Star in Digital

Publish date:

In a prestigious ceremony in early July, our Digital Transformation Consultant Anahita Mahmoudi was recognised as a ‘Rising Star in Digital’ at the We Are The City Rising Star Awards. 

Now in their fifth year, the Rising Star Awards were the first to focus on the achievements of women below senior management or director level – representing the female talent pipeline and the next generation of leaders.

The awards were entered by over 1,250 individuals and were judged by a panel of 54 independent judges. Over 35,000 public votes of support were received for the 200 shortlisted nominees across 115 countries.

“Act with ambition and compassion”

Anahita (pictured right) comments: “To all my dear colleagues at Capgemini and beyond: have a rebellious spirit, act with ambition and compassion, dare to be creative and disruptive, care for people and the future. Step away from the existing ways of working and lead the transition from the present to the future world.”
