2016 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards


General information

Winners announced: 2016 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards



Technology is fast-paced and innovative, attracting some of the brightest minds and creative thinkers out there. Despite the opportunities it has to offer, just 15.3% of the workforce is female.  In the words of Melissa Di Donato, one of technology’s greatest role models, “what you cannot see, you cannot be”. Role models have a crucial part to play in showing girls and women everywhere that they too can have amazing careers in the sector. 

That's why we continue to search for the industry’s brightest stars and most inspirational women to demonstrate to the nation that #WomenDoTech too. The 2016 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards is all about revealing role models to encourage more girls and women to see technology as the place to be, and of course, celebrate their contribution to the industry. Discover this year's winners.


Join the #womendotech campaign


If you’re a woman in technology you can also join our campaign to show the nation that #WomenDoTech. Simply take a photo of you and tell @everywomanUK what you do for the technology industry using the hashtag #WomenDoTech. We'll re-tweet your photo to inspire 1000s of women and girls across the world.

One sure-fire way of getting noticed for the FDM everywoman in Technology Awards is a really good, well completed nomination form. Make sure you take your time over your nomination, so that you tell us absolutely everything that showcases the nominee's brilliance and double check that all the contact details are correct.

  • Pay attention to the word limits -word limits are not just a recommendation - nominations that include answers that are below the word limit are very unlikely to be considered, whereas nominations that exceed the word limit will be marked down by the judges.
  • Give us enough detail so we can fully grasp the nominee's achievements.
  • Use statistical evidence in your answers
  • Stick to the point and avoid waffle.

This is your opportunity to really sell the nominee - why does the nominee deserve to win an Award? How has the nominee inspired others through their work activity?

Support your nomination

Remember, you can submit supporting evidence to your nomination in the form of video links, press releases, news articles, photographs, testimonials or other items which you think will help the judges make informed decisions about the nominee. Supporting evidence is optional, however nominations that submit supporting evidence will be scored higher by the Judging Panel. Any supporting evidence must be submitted in one document, no longer than four A4 sides and must be clearly labelled and emailed to events@everywoman.com  before the deadline of 27 October 2015.

The Judging Process

All successful entrants will be contacted by 18 December 2015 if required to attend Judging Day which will include filming and the judges interview.

There will be one winner per category and one recipient of the Woman of the Year Award. The judges' decision will be final and no correspondence will be entered into before or after the judging.

All decisions regarding the judging process are made by our independent judging panel. The everywoman team do not influence this process.
