Elemental Co-Founder scores a hatrick as she’s named as one of the Most Influential Women in Tech for third year running

LEEANN MONK-OZGUL, CO FOUNDER AND CO-CEO OF ELEMENTAL, HAS RETAINED HER PLACE AS ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL WOMEN IN TECH ON COMPUTER WEEKLY’S LONG LIST, FOR THREE CONSECUTIVE YEARS.

In 2017 and 2018, Leeann was listed with over 200 women who had worked to increase the amount of diversity in the technology industry and had contributed to the sector.

In 2017, the number of nominations exceeded 160, prompting Computer Weekly to publish a longlist of nominations for the first time.

This number has since grown further, with more than 200 names put forward in 2018, and this year 360 women who have made a significant contribution both to the women in tech movement and the technology sector overall.

Leeann said “With our background in community development, Jennifer Neff and I have always been passionate about empowering individuals to improve their health and wellbeing and we recognised that technology had a vital role to play. Our social prescribing platform and any enhancements we make to it derive from real life needs and requirements that I’ve experienced and continue to experience first-hand working in the community, so it’s not just tech for the sake of tech, it’s tech for good, designed with a people first approach.”

I’m absolutely humbled to have been shortlisted as one of the UK’s most influential women in tech for the third year running. We’ve had yet another significant year of growth since being shortlisted by Computer Weekly for the second year in 2018 and this announcement helps to further build on that momentum and wave the flag for women in tech.”

Since the launch of its list of influential UK women in tech in 2012, the list has expanded from the top 25 women in UK tech to the top 50 to showcase as many of the industry’s women as possible.

Computer Weekly will soon publish their expert judges’ decision on which 50 names have been chosen for the shortlist, which will go forward to a reader vote to help decide the winner of this year’s Most Influential Woman in UK Technology accolade.

Jennifer and Leeann

Someone’s health and wellbeing can be affected by where they live, what they do for a living, their income or their early childhood background experiences. This in turn leads to some stark, and often avoidable health differences.

We founded Elemental to play an active part in halting health inequalities through the social prescribing movement. Our technology helps communities to be better connected, build resilience and bring real precision to the measurement of the impact of community investment.

We work with organisations that want to continue to invest in their communities but want to be much better at measuring impact and outcomes.

We believe this is a powerful route out of health inequality.
