Maltese engineer Simran Mohnani has been recognised for her role in breaking glass ceilings for women in technology.
She was named along with 99 others in this year’s TechWomen100 awards for their exceptional work as leaders in the male-dominated industry. The UK awards showcase inspirational female leaders within the technology sector, including roles like data scientists, quantitative analysts and engineers.
“This is such an honour. I am truly lucky to be surrounded by change makers and star cheerleaders who I look up to daily,” she wrote, thanking her family and colleagues for the award.
Mohani, who was born and raised in Malta with Indian roots, works as a Systems Engineering Analyst with Deloitte, a major accounting firm in the UK. When she’s not filling up her already impressive resume, Mohnani is a global trekker, choreographer and avid Bollywood dancer.
Within Deloitte, Mohnani is the lead of Codename MAXINE, a 90+ strong external-facing community designed to expand the pipeline of female and other under-represented talent within technology.
She has received the Deloitte Limelight Award for her efforts leading MAXINE. She also received the Salters’ Graduate Award as one of the top five UK Chemical Engineers in 2019 for her academic achievements, internship and research contributions and work in championing women in STEM as a female role model.
“My aim is to expand the typical image of our future technologists and to empower a united workforce that reflects the diversity of our world’s people – one where all voices have an equal seat at the table,” she told TechWomen100.
Well done Mohnani!
