We are excited to share the news that Anja Loug Helland has been recognized as one of Norway's 50 leading tech women.
About the award
For the fifth year in a row, the NHO association Abelia and ODA-Network has named Norway's 50 leading tech women. The official award was held on international women's day, by a digital event honoring the winners.
The purpose of the award is to increase the proportion of women who work with technology and management in business and the public sector. To solve the significant challenges of our time, we need problem solvers of both sexes.
The proportion of women who work with management and technology is too low, and Norway needs more women to open their eyes to technology. Abelia and ODA-Nettverk will do something about this. Therefore, we celebrate the talents we already have, intending to inspire new ones to choose technology and leadership.
- With the year we have left behind, the fundamental role technology plays has never been clearer. Be it in interaction, health, sustainability or education. Everyone must create technological solutions for the future, and this year's figures show that there are still too few tech women in Norway. It is extra important and gratifying that these fantastic 50 role models represent a wide range of opportunities, which we hope will inspire many more girls and women to create the tech solutions we need in the future, says Kristine Hofer Næss, Chief Customer Officer at Amesto and Chairman of the Board of ODA-Nettverk.
- The corona crisis has shown us even more clearly that we need all tremendous forces to meet the significant challenges that we as a society face. Today's and tomorrow's problem solvers are both women and men, but there are still far more men than women working in this industry. This is also the primary motivation for Abelia and ODA to inspire and motivate even more women to choose professions in technology, says Øystein Eriksen Søreide, head of the jury and CEO of Abelia
