Register in advance of this event, so you don’t miss out.
Computing is delighted to announce that our fourth annual Women in Tech Excellence Awards will take place virtually! Like you, we need to get creative this year – we can’t stage our awards at our usual ritzy venue but we can host a fabulous and special online ceremony on Tuesday 1 December at 4pm , after this year’s Women in Tech Festival Global .
Our Women in Tech Excellence Awards (formerly Women in IT Excellence Awards) are important as they provide inspiration for younger women looking to build a career in our industry.
The challenge of increasing diversity in IT is now firmly on the agenda in boardrooms across the UK, but it is far from a solved problem. Women are still under-represented across the industry, especially at higher echelons, and they’re also likely to be paid less than their male counterparts for the same work.
The issue extends right through the career, starting in schools where education institutions report little to now growth in the numbers of females taking STEM subjects. More needs to be done to encourage the female IT leaders of tomorrow.
The Women in Tech Excellence Awards is designed to help move us as an industry towards a solution, by recognising and promoting the many talented females, and other success stories. There are places in IT for females, and this industry can lead to rewarding, fulfilling careers for everyone.
To join us for this year’s awards, please register here for free and we will be in touch with more information on the ceremony, including how you and your teams can get involved, what we have planned and also your access to the broadcast.
