Dunn and Humby receive honours from Kingston University

Starcount’s CEO Edwina Dunn and Chief Data Scientist Clive Humby have been recognised by Kingston University for their outstanding achievements in the fields of data science and gender equality. They received honorary awards from the University, joining more than 2,700 students crossing the stage at the borough’s Rose Theatre as part of Kingston University’s graduation ceremonies.


Dunn received her award ‘in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the marketing industry and to gender equality and women’s involvement in STEM.’ Meanwhile Humby was recognised for his work in ‘pioneering the use of data’. His honorary doctorate recognises the ‘outstanding contribution he has made to data science.’

Each year the University recognises honorary graduates for their outstanding contribution to a specific field or society in general. Eight awards are made during the ceremonies, which also celebrate the academic achievements of undergraduate and postgraduate students from four of the University’s faculties.

Last week Dunn was also named Starcount CEO as one 100 Women to Watch in a supplement which was launched last week as part of the Female FTSE report by Cranfield School of Management. Dunn was praised for her work at Starcount and how it measures ‘global tastes and trends of 1.7 billion people across 12 of the world’s largest social networks.’ They also highlighted the fact she ‘reinvented customer relationship marketing’ and ‘is widely accredited as redefining the relationship between retailers and customers worldwide.’
