Edwina Dunn named one of 100 Women to Watch in Female FTSE report

Starcount CEO Edwina Dunn has been named as one 100 Women to Watch in a supplement which was launched on Tuesday as part of the Female FTSE report by Cranfield School of Management.

She was recognised along with the other women by an expert panel led by Dr Patricia Pryce, Director, Beauwest Consultancy Ltd; and Jacey Graham, Director, Brook Graham.

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.’ Other notable aspects of her work included her role as ‘Founder of The Female Lead, working in schools promoting diversity and providing role models for young women and work as ‘Chair of Your Life, encouraging more careers in STEM industries.’

The profiles on the list reflect a broad range of backgrounds and include women who hold senior executive roles in FTSE 350 firms and other significant organisations such as large non-listed companies, major charities, professional services firms, educational institutions and the Civil Service, and from many different disciplines and functions.

Introducing the 2018 report the authors commented: “2018 is a significant year for women in the UK. It marks 100 years since women (over the age of 30) gained the right to vote, the unveiling of the first statue of a female in Parliament Square (Millicent Fawcett) and the first time a royal princess (Princess Charlotte) gets to keep her position in line to the throne, despite the arrival of a baby brother (Prince Louis). And for the first time women’s representation on FTSE 100/250 boards hits a new high of 29%/23.7%.”
