Shaping the Future: Nordic Women in Tech Awards
The Nordic Women in Tech Awards aim to celebrate individuals and organizations that have elevated industry standards, serving as exemplary figures and showcasing exceptional initiative in promoting the significant contributions of women in the tech sector. The "Initiative of the Year" award specifically acknowledges outstanding efforts that contribute to the success of tech projects, emphasizing education, training, and various campaigns supporting women's integral role in the industry.
The award ceremony, held in Reykjavik, provided a platform to recognize and applaud the achievements of women in the tech field. Laura McGrath's win in the "Initiative of the Year" category highlights her impactful contributions to Lola&Lykke and the broader tech community.
Laura McGrath: Transforming the Maternal Health Industry
Laura McGrath, co-founder of Lola&Lykke, has played a significant role in reshaping the maternal health landscape through innovative solutions. She believes the world needs a women's healthcare revolution: it's time to empower every woman with cutting-edge science, knowledge, and support. "How can we be on the brink of artificial generalized intelligence, but still not understand and treat basic women's health issues with the rigour and respect they deserve", questions Laura. Surely better health outcomes for women mean better health outcomes for everyone. Laura's vision and leadership have not only positioned Lola&Lykke as a success in the Finnish startup scene but has also gained her international acclaim.

Lola&Lykke collaborates with experts, organizations, and stakeholders to build a sustainable foundation for maternal health, while their initiatives promote sustainability, inclusivity, and global social priorities.
Lola&Lykke's holistic approach to maternal health has earned it multiple awards, including prestigious "Best Breast Pump of The Year" awards 7 times in a row and the title of "Parenting Brand of the Year" in the UK. The team at Lola&Lykke strives to build a strong sense of community for the women they want to help and for the women they stand beside in the femtech industry.

All whilst keeping the conversation open, honest, and real.
