To be nominated for an award is an achievement in itself and Equiniti congratulates all nominees and finalists in the Innovator of the Year Award.

Category Sponsor: Rising Star of the Year Award


Where can you find a group of successful, selfless women dedicated to furthering their own and others development through sharing their wisdom and experience? This was the question we asked ourselves in 2012 when we were looking for ways to support our female talent at T-Systems Limited to be the best they can be.  Our answer was, everywoman!

Great women are made, not born and under our Guiding Principle, ‘Best Place to Perform and Grow’ we endeavour to create an environment for our people to thrive, where they can grasp opportunities; get recognised and be rewarded for good performance.

What we saw in everywoman was a network that not only supported our vision but also stretched our thoughts and challenged us to look deeper at our goals.  Together and in collaboration, we now have a supportive network of dynamic, innovative and empowered women who have achieved success and love what they do.  Everywoman has provided us with guidance, training materials, connections and much more. 

Together we are supporting women in technology and business for today and tomorrow.
