Celebrating female founders and amplifying their profile.


We held our first ever AccelerateHER Showcase in March 2021 to celebrate International Women’s Day. Sponsored by CGI UK, attendees heard pitches from four female founders in the AccelerateHER Network.

We were also joined by Lindsay McGranaghan, Vice President, Business Unit Lead Scotland at CGI and AccelerateHER CEO and Founder, Jackie Waring, who discussed the International Women’s Day 2021 message “Choose to Challenge”.
