Rise, the advocacy group for gender diversity in the media technology sector, has announced Daniella Weigner, co-founder and Managing Director of Cinegy GmbH, as the 2022 Woman of the Year. She’ll receive her award during the Rise Awards ceremony Nov. 30 in London and streamed live on the Rise YouTube channel. The award is open to any woman from across the sector, at any level, anywhere in the world. Earlier this year when the Ukraine war broke out, British-born Weigner and members of the Cinegy management team travelled to Ukraine to bring staff and their families back to Munich. Together with Sonya Chakarova and Phillip Covell, she brought together more than 400 broadcast and media companies and individuals to provide resources, solutions and hardware to Ukrainian TV channels and media outlets to ensure they could stay on-air amid ongoing conflict. The winner of this year’s Student of the Year award will also be announced during the ceremony with the shortlist including Humber College student Deepa Bhat.
