Shields said: "It is a real honour for me to be part of the judging panel for these new, much deserved awards. Throughout my career I've advocated for a change to take place that champions the role women in technology play - so it is fantastic to see an awards ceremony dedicated to just this. I am looking forward to working with my other judges and wish all contestants the best of luck."
