TOP-10 Women in Cloud Computing in Poland

Top-10 best experts working in Poland related to cloud technologies were selected by the jury. It was chaired by Magdalena Dziewguć, Country Director at Google Cloud Poland. The results were announced during the evening gala at the Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit 2023 conference.

Cloud technologies have seen massive growth recently, and Poland is no exception. The cloud revolutionizes the economy and simplifies our everyday life and work. As more and more companies move their operations to the cloud, the demand for qualified specialists in this field is growing. While men traditionally dominate the technology industry, many women in Poland contribute significantly to cloud technologies. In recognition of their achievements, the Perspektywy Education Foundation has prepared a list of the Top 100 Women in Cloud Computing.

The announcement of an unranked list of experts working in the hottest technological areas traditionally accompanies the conference. This year, exceptional women were presented, and they were not only Polish women but also foreigners working in Poland.

“Women are not only essential to the development and success of cloud computing, but they are an integral part of shaping its future. Their diverse perspectives and innovative ideas are of crucial importance in creating a more inclusive and fair digital world for everyone,” – said Dr. Bianka Siwińska. She is a president of the Perspektywy Education Foundation, originator of the Perspektywy Women in Tech Summit conference and the TOP-100 Women rankings.

This year’s list was created with the help of experts from the OPI PIB in May this year. And it was from it that the jury selected the best experts professionally dealing with the field of cloud technologies. The selection was based not only on their professional achievements in the area. But contributions to the industry, and their potential to influence and shape the future of cloud computing as well. The list includes women from all walks of life, including academia, industry, business, and the public sector. Here they are:

Living on three continents has made her believe that everyone sometimes feels like they don’t fit in. She says: “I was different and always questioned the rules. I know what it’s like to feel like a stranger, and everyone should accept and emphasize their differences. When people with different backgrounds come together, they can create something special.” Salsabeel draws from her professional experience that diversity can create a more dynamic and productive workplace, while an environment devoid of diversity misses out on great people who could prove themselves and feel included in co-creating new things.
