Nadira Hussain

Director of Leadership Development & Research

Socitm (Confirmed)

As President of SOCITM (2015/2016), Nadira focused on two key areas: the primary one being the ‘Women in IT’ (WIT) initiative – to attract more women into the Society, supporting the provision of personal development opportunities through the successful launch and delivery of the ‘Empowering Women in the Digital World’ leadership programme and improving the visibility of women more widely across the sector. The second was exploiting ways in which local government can improve service delivery and value for money through sharing. Nadira has continued to champion the WIT initiative to build on the great momentum realised, with the focus turning to how we attract young girls and ‘career returners’ into tech and the public sector.
