THE ACHIEVEMENTS OF WOMEN IN TECHNOLOGY
Since the tech giants of the world began diversity reporting back in 2014, some things have changed…but not enough. Globally, there is a notorious lack of representation, across the tech industry, of women, black and minority ethnic professionals, workers with disabilities and those from the LGBTQ+ community.
Progression around gender equity has, arguably, taken larger leaps than other areas of inclusion; however, it remains that women make up only 25% of the workforce in some of the world’s Big Techs (Statista, 2020).
The Women in IT Summit & Awards initiative, presented by DiversityQ in association with Information Age, works alongside a community of industry champions to change the statistics.
We will award high-achievers, advocates and role models across the USA tech sector, from the efforts of entrepreneurs and start-ups, to large corporate and industry champions. This year, there are 20 categories including CTO, DEI Initiative, Next Generation Leader, Innovator and Woman of the Year.
By continuing to identify new industry role models, we can inspire students and graduates, build a united community of change-makers, and motivate professionals to continue their work in technology and in the community.
The winners will be revealed in a virtual ceremony on September 21 2021. To register your place, please click here.
Technology has been the glue holding many aspects of society together in the recent year, keeping us connected, and fuelling global healthcare achievements. Simultaneously, social justice movements have rocked every industry and forced organisations worldwide think about their social impact and inclusion practices. We look at these events in the recent past and ask the question – how will a pandemic, and years of fervent social action, impact investment, innovation, & inclusion in technology?
The free-to-attend Women in IT summit will help you turn conversation into action; through dedicated content streams and masterclass sessions, the agenda explores the up-and-coming worlds of technology investment, entrepreneurship & innovation, alongside a focus on intersecting diversities & technology, and offering professional development to help boost your productivity.
Join us on October 13 to hear new and unique perspectives, discover dynamic opportunities for collaboration, and leave armed with actionable takeaways for your personal and professional life.
We look forward to seeing you there!
