Woman Who is not just about one day in the calendar year and the celebrations continue throughout the following weeks and months.
Congratulations Dr Ilana Wisby, Oxford Quantum Circuits, Winner of the Woman Who Achieves in STEM Award 2021.
The Woman Who Achieves & Solopreneur Awards took place on Friday 1st October. This year we held a hybrid event with many joining us in the Marquee at Coombe Abbey and those like Ilana that couldn’t, and joined us online.
Congratulations Ilana on your achievements, and thank you to all the Winners and Finalists for your support and for making this event into an amazing hybrid Awards event.
I am the CEO of OQC, the UK’s leader in quantum computing.
After receiving my PhD in quantum physics, I turned to startups and became a deep tech entrepreneur, building companies and teams from the ground up, in finance, and in AI.
In addition to my role at OQC, I am a member of the Quantum Metrology Institute’s Advisory Board and a member of the World Economic Forum’s Future Council on Quantum. I am also a mentor to several young women in STEM and a fierce advocate of diversity in tech.
