Congratulations to Socially Aware’s London-based correspondent Sue McLean for being shortlisted for the Women in the City Woman of Achievement Awards 2014. Established in 2007, these awards recognize senior level women who are actively promoting and encouraging the progress of women within their own organizations and beyond. Winners will be announced on October 23 at a celebration evening. In addition to her many contributions to Socially Aware, Sue is of counsel in Morrison & Foerster’s Technology Transactions Group, is the founder and chair of the firm’s MoFo Women affinity group, and manages and mentors a number of lawyers in the firm. She is also a passionate advocate of gender diversity in tech. Just this week she hosted and chaired a “Women in Technology” roundtable with Harriet Minter of The Guardian newspaper. Senior women from leading companies such as VMware, Oracle, Intel, IBM, and Fujitsu, along with other representatives from across the sector, attended to discuss how we can improve gender diversity in tech. It was a great success and follow-up sessions are planned.
