As we go into the weekend, we want to share some of what’s happening at OpenUK with you and if you have some free time as we continue to share podcasts as part of our never ending Summer of Open Source Software Security which you might enjoy. It was a great honour to have this work recognised by CSO online as one of 8 important open source security initiatives in 2022.

We will see many of you on Monday, 17 October at a very special event, our OpenUK Thought Leadership Day: Open Source Software Infrastructure, Curation and Security. This will bring together a number of significant themes: open source software in infrastructure, supply chain management and SBOMs, OSPOs and governance, Security, Policy and funding.

There are a very few publicly available spaces at this event and you can find out more here. Registration is now closed but I am both looking forward to the event with such great speakers and also to sharing the video content afterwards. We will have a couple of very special announcements to make at this event and I will follow up with you on these too.


OpenUK Board Director Liz Rice and I were listed in the Computing long list of the Most Influential Women in UK Tech and the final 50 will be named on the 19th of October. It would be fantastic if either of us make the 50, but it’s a great honour to be on the long list and not many organisations have two women on it.

And whilst we are celebrating the diversity that makes up our organisation, congratulations to Sonya Moisset for making the list of 2022 TechWomen100 Awards. It was a pleasure to see her recognised in this, following our nomination of her.
