Platforms such as the TechWomen50 Awards are so important to continue the tech industry’s mission for gender parity. These awards shine a light on up and coming emerging talent for the IT sector to see, hire, retain and value.
The TechWomen50 Awards showcase the female pipeline and those who are fighting to move the dial on diversity – exactly what the industry needs to continue building its tech communities.
I am delighted to launch the TechWomen50 Awards, which is a natural evolution of all the work we have been doing to support women in the tech industry over the past three years. Over the course of my career, I have seen some truly talented and inspirational women who have been recognised by a multitude of awards. However, there is not one awards series that focuses on the next generation of female talent as a whole, or those who support these individuals.
Our hope is that by recognising not just our top 50, but also those that champion women in tech too, we can encourage more organisations to follow their lead.
