sharing knowledge and celebrating the achievements of women in technology
The Women in IT Awards Asia return to Singapore for the second time on 2nd June 2020 with the exciting addition of the Women in IT Summit!
Asia Pacific countries have experienced extraordinary economic growth in the past three decades. With new affluence, Asia’s talent pool has increased in size and this economic boom should be the biggest testament to growth, innovation and stability, however, organisations are still facing a talent shortage and women’s dropout rates in middle management are high. Despite more women perusing tertiary education, only a small percentage take up CEO or managing director positions, and 14% of women who enroll never event enter the workforce.
How can industry leaders help to overcome social and cultural factors, along with industry bias, in order to build a more diverse and inclusive workforce?
The Women in IT Summit looks to address these pressing concerns and through knowledge sharing, collaboration and networking opportunities will help organisations and individuals to; redefine and enhance your role as an IT leader, find your voice to be heard and respected, influence recruitment into your teams and give back by inspiring and encouraging the future generations.
Following the summit, the Women in IT Awards will recognise the outstanding female tech talent in the industry, as well as the employers that are implementing diversity initiatives and breaking boundaries to spearhead real change in the sector. We will award high-achievers, advocates and role models across 15 categories including; CIO of the Year, Young Leader of the Year, Tech for Good Award, Entrepreneur of the Year and Woman of the Year.
The winners will be announced on 2nd June 2020 at a lavish ceremony, complete with a champagne reception and three-course gala dinner, at the Shangri-La, Singapore.
Nominations are now closed. Please check back for the shortlist announcement – coming soon!
