25 September 2019 | BERLIN, THE PALACE HOTELTHE WORLD'S LARGEST TECH DIVERSITY INITIATIVE
The Women in IT Awards and Summit are coming to Europe!
The Bonhill Group is delighted to announce the launch of the Women in IT Awards and Summit in Berlin, Germany, on 25 September 2019. Berlin is the perfect city to launch our European Awards and Summit series as the city is one of Europe’s tech hubs and according to the German Economic Institute, there are around 500, 000 STEM jobs waiting to be filled. There is a lack of qualified IT candidates in general and women, in particular, are not looking to become part of this industry. This means there is a huge, untapped pool of possible talent, who just need encouragement to join the technology sector. The Women in IT Awards and Summit are the perfect platforms to provide examples of women who are successful in the tech space, highlight the opportunities available and provide the encouragement and guidance needed.
The Women in IT Awards Series is dedicated to tackling the technology industry’s disheartening gender imbalance. It does this by showcasing the achievements and innovation of women in technology, identifying new role models and promoting further dialogue around diversity among industry influencers.
Organised by business-technology magazine Information Age, the Women in IT Awards has gathered resounding support from trade associations, politicians and companies of all sizes and sectors since launching in 2015. After five successful years in the UK, we very much look forward to bringing this success story to Europe.
Since its launch in 1995, Information Age has been regarded as one of the most respected technology titles in the B2B realm. More than 20 years on, the brand stands as the UK’s leader in UK IT thought leadership, holding a strong influence over its esteemed readership of IT decision-makers, which also partake extensively in IA’s end-user focused awards, conferences and roundtables. Meanwhile, information-age.com continues to grow as a trusted source of news, analysis and thought leadership among a wider audience of readers involved in the strategic implementation of business technology.
