Elemental Software Co CEO, Leeann Monk, has been announced as one of the UK’s Most Influential Women in Tech today by Computer Weekly. Every year, Computer Weekly asks the technology industry to nominate who it thinks are the Most Influential Women in UK Tech and Leeann Monk has made the 2017 list for the first time.
This announcement comes off the back of the Derry and Dubai based Tech For Good company having just raised £300,000 investment with the help of ClearlySo, Europe’s leading impact investment bank.
Leeann’s track record is in community health, managing public and third sector projects to improve the quality of life of communities most at risk. She co-founded Elemental Software back in 2013 with Jennifer Neff experiencing first-hand the inequalities surrounding health and wellbeing and how Commissioners were often struggling to measure the true impact of programmes and services they had commissioned.
Elemental’s social prescription software was developed to address an increasing demand to deliver more effective social prescribing programmes and support the issues beyond clinical needs that impact health and well being.
On hearing the news today Leeann said, ‘I am delighted to be recognised alongside influential women like Rachel Murphy from NHS Digital and Charlotte Murray and Helen Milner from Good Things Foundation. Coming from a community development background, our experience working with communities is that digital can play a massive part in engaging our most disadvantaged neighbourhoods. This announcement will be influential in helping us recruit the best talent we can find as we grow our team and be part of a movement that ensures that social prescribing is common practice for health improvement’.
