celebrating OUTSTANDING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE technology INDUSTRY
DiversityQ is delighted to announce that nominations are now open for the 2023 Women in IT Awards, UK Edition!
The awards, now its ninth year, have recognised and celebrated women, allies, and organisations across the United Kingdom for their outstanding contributions to the technology industry.
Despite years of uncertainty and immense change, we continue to see incredible dedication, transformation and innovation from individuals and organisations alike. Women are gaining ground as the technology industry makes slow but steady progress in shrinking its gender gap. As reported in the ‘2022 April Deloitte Insight article’, women in tech leadership are making the fastest advances.
The 2023 Awards wants to shine a light on impactful growth in all its forms.
Our judges are looking for individuals, organisations and initiatives that have gone above and beyond, and that have demonstrated a huge impact on businesses, employees, and the wider industry.
Shine a light on outstanding industry talent and role models, as well as the employers that are implementing diversity initiatives that continues to spearhead real change in the sector.
Nominations will close on Friday, 9 September 2022.
Emerging with Impact – prioritising real action in a post-pandemic world
Diversity and inclusion conversations in the technology industry are no new thing; however, in many areas, movement on better representation has been stalling or even regressing. There is a distinct absence of women in tech leadership roles and a notorious lack of representation of people of colour, workers with disabilities and those from the LGBTQ+ community, and COVID-19 was particularly damaging for marginalised professionals.
Diversity at all intersections is critical in tech, as it enables companies to innovate inclusively in a way that takes everyone into consideration, not just one section of society.
Since 2019, the Women in IT Summits, with their trailblazing team of tech experts and DEI advocates, have been discussing and educating on how we can put diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility at the core as we continue to develop revolutionary technology.
Our theme this year will aim to explore how organisations within the tech industry can prioritise real action and create maximum impact in a post-pandemic world.
We look forward to welcoming you!
