Welcome Note

 

Due to the success of the Women in IT Awards Silicon Valley 2018 the awards program is returning to Silicon Valley in 2019 and will continue to shine a light on female tech. For US women in tech, representation still languishes at 25%, which has steadily declined from 35% over the last 15 years. However, Silicon Valley comes with it’s own unique set of challenges, with only 11% of executives being female. Furthermore, the odds of being in a high-level or leadership position is almost three times greater for men than for women.

Despite 57% of women holding all college degrees in the US, several studies have revealed an average of only 17% of women taking computer science courses. In the US, women in computer engineering and science are paid an estimated 79.2% of a men’s annual median earnings, 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 Silicon Valley aims to tackle this issue and readdress the gender imbalance, by showcasing the achievements of women in the sector and identifying new roles models.

Since it’s launch in 2015, the Women in IT Awards have showcased women in technology in London, New York, Singapore and Dublin.  Organised by business-technology site Information Age, the Women in IT Awards Silicon Valley acts as a flagship and high-profile platform to support the industry in it’s mission to move the dial on gender. Offering a series of awards, ranging from CIO of the year through to Rising Star, the program provides a platform to identify females at all levels achieving great things in Silicon Valley.
