Sara Hamilton Shortlisted for Women in Tech Excellence Awards
We’re delighted that Sara’s efforts have been recognised in her recent shortlist nomination for this award, in the Transformation Leader:Tech category.
Despite a record number of entries this year, Deputy Director, Product & Managed Service’s Sara’s technically accomplished team mentor, coach and passionate approach for user experience, alongside her desire to streamline processes, improve efficiency and develop products from conception – made her worthy of reaching the shortlist.
As an active member of Ascent’s Women in Tech user group, Sara actively aims to contribute to change towards workplace diversity, with her belief that it can bring huge benefits to tech companies in terms of creativity, improved problem solving and improved products. As an active social campaigner, Sara believes how employers should emphasise how there is no heroism in martyrdom or being seen to be working and the real money is in working effectively and sustainably – something she actively encourages as part of her team.
Experienced in agile transformation, scrum implementation, product and programme ownership, internal audits and quality management, Sara has been responsible for introducing agile processes into product development at Mango. With colleagues, describing Sara as a ‘fantastic team lead, who has instigated change at a team and process level – testing technology delivery and bringing a genuine culture of ownership to the team’, it’s not surprising Sara’s talent’s have been recognised.
We look forward to the attending the awards dinner on 24th November and congratulating Sara on her achievements at Mango, alongside colleague Layla Marshall, Ascent’s Director of Product & Marketing who has also been shortlisted for the ‘Outstanding Returner Award’.
