LONDON/OXFORD/UK – 10.03.2020 – TechPixies has been named a WINNER for Digital Course of the Year in the inaugural DigitalWomen Awards.
The DigitalWomen Awards in association with Natwest Business and the Federation of Small Businesses celebrate women working in digital and digital business from their amazing community and beyond who are doing the most incredible work in the digital space they operate in, those who are making the right moves and going beyond and above what is usually expected. The awards are open to any woman working in digital and entrepreneurship and entrants go through a rigorous judging process by their esteemed panel.
Lucy Hall Director of Avviso Media Ltd and Founder of DigitalWomen Said:
“We are very excited to bring the DigitalWomen awards to the female digital and business community and beyond, these awards are the perfect opportunity to showcase and raise profiles of women doing great work.”
Joy Foster, Founder of TechPixies Said:
“We never started TechPixies in order to win awards, we simply wanted to help 12 women return to work following a career break five years ago. I’m thrilled that by raising investment and moving our course online, we’ve been able to scale the business and transform lives of hundreds of women across the UK – breaking down tech barriers and helping women from all walks of life return to work, change careers or start a business so that they can do fulfilling, stimulating work they love while at the same time contributing financially to their families and the British economy.”
TechPixies is an award winning social enterprise which helps women upskill with modern technology in order to return to work, change careers or start a business. Since 2015, TechPixies has helped over 300 women upskill and as a result has won several awards including Women in Business Startup of the Year 2018 and Enterprise Nation Female Startup of the Year 2017. Joy and her company were recently profiled in Forbes for raising £150,000 and in Stella for breaking down barriers for women wanting to re-ignite their careers and in April 2019, TechNation named TechPixies ‘one to watch’ in the EdTech space.
The Mission of DigitalWomen is to Empower and showcase 1 million women through digital skills. We aim to help women to stay relevant in an ever changing digital world through digital education. Digital women is a digital skill sharing community where women can learn to boost digital skills and be inspired by inspirational women in digital business.
