2018 fdm everywoman in Technology Awards

 

 
 
 

 

 

This event is over. However, nominations for the 2019 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards are now open.

The annual Awards programme uncovers and celebrates the most inspirational women in technology working within STEM industries, demonstrating the vast range of career opportunities that the sector has to offer for women.

This year’s programme will have a focus on celebrating and identifying role models to help inspire tomorrow’s world. 

Our recent study revealed that the second factor cited by women in technology as the biggest cause of the gender gap in tech was lack of female role models for young girls. Importantly for organisations, access to female role models is a huge factor in retention. Being able to “see what they can be” is the number one factor cited by women in our study for why they stay in their roles.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Supported by the most forward-thinking brands, which are committed to celebrating the skills, innovation and leadership of women, our women in tech awards champion and celebrate women who are achieving career success and the companies that are supporting them to do so. Entrants can be at any stage of their career, including young students or apprentices passionate about the future of technology and high-flying senior women well established on the career ladder.

WHY NOMINATE?

The FDM everywoman in technology awards are free to enter and past winners and finalists, ranging from rising stars to entrepreneurs to senior corporate leaders, go on to become ambassadors for women working in the technology sector, ultimately encouraging more women and young girls to consider a career in this innovative and fast moving sector.

New category awards for 2018 are the International Inspiration Award, the Apprentice Award and the Male Agent of Change Award, awarded to a man for his active commitment to advancing the progress of women working in technology.
