Celebrating the Contribution of Our Leading Women

Wed 8th Mar 2017

International Women's Day 2016

For over 20 years Mallon Technology has been at the forefront of the GIS industry within the UK & Ireland. This wouldn't have been possible were it not for the contribution of the Leading Women at the heart of our company.

This International Women's Day we are highlighting the important contribution made to the success of our business from some of Leading women as well as celebrating the contribution made by women throughout all levels of the business. International Women's Day is a global day celebrated the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Observed since the early 1900's, the day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action.

Women play an important role throughout all of Mallon Technology, holding both junior and senior positions across our three service areas and their contribution to our business is greatly admired. To highlight the role that women have played in shaping Mallon Technology, we have features on a few but not all of our Leading Women below. Additionally, join us on Twitter and LinkedIn this International Women's Day as we celebrate the contribution made by women in the GIS industry.
