London, United Kingdom – 7th March 2018: Qudini, a London based technology software company, has today announced its CEO & Co-Founder’s inclusion in the St. James’s House Official History of Parliament Vote100 commemorative album to celebrate the centenary of women gaining the right to vote in the UK.
This year marks 100 years since Parliament passed the Representation of the People Act 1918 which was a package of electoral reforms that extended the vote to women for the first time.
As part of these celebrations, publisher St James’s House has partnered with the History of Parliament Trust to produce their official commemorative album for the Vote100 anniversary.
Launching in June 2018, this book tells the story of the 84-year struggle for women to get the vote, how the vote was won and what that has meant for women since.
In addition to discussing key historical events, this fully illustrated coffee-table book will showcase a selection of organisations drawn from educational, cultural, social, technological and business spheres with relevant stories to tell.
As a representative of the technology sector, Qudini has joined the celebrations as an editorial partner and sponsor for the official History of Parliament Trust Vote100 commemorative album. Imogen Wethered, CEO & Co-Founder of Qudini, is one of the key business leaders highlighted in the book.

Nowadays the software improves the experience for more than 24 million customers a year across 2,500 global retail, restaurant and health care locations. The company is already global with 30% of their revenues coming from clients in Spain, USA, India and Australia.

Commenting on the project, Imogen Wethered said: “It is an honour and a privilege to be involved in such a prestigious initiative which marks 100 years since women got the right to vote. As an entrepreneur and business leader, it is amazing to see how far women have come over the past century and how much progress can be achieved in encouraging more women to get involved in the technology industry over the next few years.”
St James’s House Founder and CEO, Richard Freed, said, “Equality is one of the most important values underpinning our society, and we are extremely excited to be producing this official commemorative album for the Trust. We are also very pleased to be working with Imogen and Qudini as one of our profiled organisations.”
