Our community of 120,000 senior leaders are involved in leveraging technology to promote economic growth, increase social well-being and narrow social gaps. The Digital Leaders 100 (DL100) list recognises 100 people and organisations across the UK who are leading the way in digital transformation in all sectors. Previously, the list has featured industry names such as: Martha Lane-Fox, Mike Bracken and Eileen Burbidge. The two individual categories, Digital Leader and Young Digital Leader, have 20 names from five UK regions including Scotland and Northern Ireland. Those tracking diversity will be pleased to know our 21 judges chose a well balanced list with 11 women and 9 men of whom five are from BAME communities. The remaining 80 places in the list are taken up by organisations. Over 500 public sector bodies, SMEs and charities were considered by judges for these 80 places and it is a credit to them all that they have been selected. They represent all 12 UK regions with the largest number outside of London and the South East being from Scotland, Yorkshire and the North West. #notjustLondon Russell Haworth, Chair of Digital Leaders, said: "The Digital Leaders 100 list 2019 once again highlights the progress in digitally transforming the UK. Our community of Digital Leaders have shone a light on the many hidden heroes, quietly getting on with the nation’s digital transformation. It is fabulous to see such a strong list from outside London this year reflecting our own inclusive national programme and the growing importance of digital transformation on companies irrespective of size or sector."
