BlackLine founder and CEO Therese Tucker has been shortlisted in the first Women in IT Awards, in the category of Innovator of the Year. The awards, which took place at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel last night, celebrated the achievements of female executives in the historically male-dominated technology industry.
The Women in IT Awards, created by business and technology publication Information Age, received over 100 nominations across 11 categories including Business Leader of the Year, Security Champion of the Year and Salesforce Woman of the Year, and have been endorsed by trade associations, politicians and companies of all sizes and sectors.
Therese was recognised for her pioneering work leading the launch of BlackLine’s Finance Controls and Automation Platform, a unified cloud platform designed to automate and streamline key finance and accounting processes.
Therese comments: “The lack of women in the IT industry is an ongoing challenge. Recent studies have shown that less than 20% of the industry is made up of women – this is a worrying statistic, which shows we’re missing out on a balanced and diverse workforce.”
“Information Age has done a great job in gathering together so many people to celebrate women’s achievements within our sector. I am delighted to have been shortlisted as an Innovator of the Year”.
