women in it summit & awards asia

26 OCTOBER 2021

sharing knowledge and celebrating the achievements of women in technology

According to a report by The World Bank, women make up less than 40% of the total global workforce. While progression around gender equity has, arguably, taken larger leaps than other areas of inclusion, there is still much more to be done.

Looking beyond gender, we find a notorious lack of representation globally of black and minority ethnic professionals, workers with disabilities and those from the LGBTQ+ community. Diversity at all intersections is critical in tech, as it enables companies to create better and safer products that take everyone into consideration, not just one section of society.

The prestigious Women in IT Awards initiative, presented by DiversityQ, has been working to change these statistics since 2015, by providing a regional and global platform to showcase advocates, role models and allies working together to break digital boundaries and promote the importance of a more inclusive tech sector. Year on year we reassess, adapt and innovate, introducing new categories to remain inclusive and considerate of market developments, roles and responsibilities.

The Summit

The Women in IT Summit Asia returned virtually on 26 October 2021. We were joined by a powerhouse panel of tech experts and D&I advocates who shared valuable recommendations on creating true diversity in IT.

We will be back in 2022! Join our community to stay up to date with all event announcements, and be notified when registration is open. Follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn for all the latest news.

The awards

The winners of the 2021 Women in IT Awards Asia were announced in a glittering online ceremony on 26 October 2021. These unique awards continued to recognise and shine a light on the amazing individuals and organisations who are not only breaking digital boundaries, but championing change for women in technology.
