What are the 10 Digital Ladies Awards?
10 Digital Ladies is a networking movement run by co-founders Laila Edy, Nina Lovelace, Sally Foote, Lucia Adams, Juliet Bauer. Together, they aim to improve the visibility of, and connections between, women within the digital sector.

The awards launched this year, and they “celebrate women in digital who have defined and achieved their own vision of career success in less traditional ways, whom we think are excellent, inspirational role models,” says Nina Lovelace, 10 Digital Ladies co-founder.
