The 12 winners of the first-ever DigitalAgenda Impact Awards, sponsored by Nominet Trust, have been announced. The awards – unveiled at a packed ceremony at London’s Barbican Centre on the 2 March 2017 – celebrate digital innovations making a positive impact on the way the UK lives, learns and does business.

The founder of BCSWomen, Sue Black, is among the 12 winners, picked from more than 200 entries across three overarching themes – people, places and business – include literacy support software helping over 3.5m children overcome everyday reading and writing challenges in classrooms worldwide, a network connecting businesses to ensure no edible food goes to waste and a new platform harnessing blockchain technology to ensure aid reaches its desired destination.

Sue Black is the winner of a special editor’s Impact Award today for her outstanding contribution to technology for good.
