sharing knowledge and celebrating the achievements of women in technology
Following the success of the Women in IT Awards last year, the event will be returning to Silicon Valley on 15th October 2020 – and nominations are now open!
For US women in tech, representation still languishes at 25%, which has steadily declined from 35% over the last 15 years; Silicon Valley comes with its own unique set of challenges, with only 11% of executives being female. Several studies have revealed an average of only 17% of women are taking computer science courses however, women in STEM are still earning more than women in non-STEM jobs – in fact, they earn 35% more – a figure which should be enough to attract more women into STEM careers.
The Women in IT Awards aim to tackle the issue of gender imbalance in the global tech industry by showcasing the achievements of women in the sector and identifying new role models.
