With 1,200 business and technology leaders in attendance, the fourth annual Women in IT Awards on 31 January 2018 was the largest technology diversity event ever staged in the world. The Women in IT Awards will return 30 January 2019.


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.


Maggie Philbin, TV presenter and TeenTech CEO, hosted the 2018 ceremony, while Jo Caulfield brought laughter to the lively evening with her post-dinner comedy routine. The audience were also treated to keynotes from Baroness Martha Lane Fox and Caroline Glackin, site leader at Amazon Web Services.
