With 1,200 business and technology leaders in attendance, the fifth annual Women in IT Awards on 31 January 2019 was the largest technology diversity event ever staged in the world. The Women in IT Awards will return 29 January 2020.


The Women in IT Awards is the world’s largest event 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.


Ortis and Georgie from the Gadget Show hosted the 2019 ceremony, with keynote speeches from Niki Dowdall the managing director of Bonhill Group and Gavin Jackson managing director at Amazon Web Services.
