WeAreTechWomen opens nominations for TechWomen100 Awards

Posted 3 September 2018 · Add Comment

WeAreTechWomen has opened the nominations process for the TechWomen100 Awards, which are supported by Accenture, BAE Systems, Credit Suisse and Worldpay.

Although many Women in Technology awards choose to focus on inspirational women that have already achieved seniority, in roles such Director, CIO or CTO, WeAreTechWomen feel it is extremely important to not only highlight successful and influential women but also believe the pipeline of female technologists need a platform to shine too.

It hopes that by highlighting the accolades of up-and-coming inspirational female tech talent, they can help to create a new generation of female role models for the industry.

Through the awards, WeAreTechWomen would also like to recognise a number of senior individuals who are championing up-and-coming women, as well as any organisations that have designed and implemented successful initiatives and programmes in order to attract, retain and develop female tech talent. They also wish to applaud the often-voluntary efforts of the women in tech networks that operate across the UK and again would like to formerly recognise these within its awards.

The TechWomen100 awards are the first of their kind to focus solely on the female tech talent pipeline and recognise the impact of champions, companies and networks that are leading the way.

"I am delighted that Worldpay is continuing to support the TechWomen100 awards this year and that it’s now 100 and not just 50. There are so many women out there in a wide variety of technical positions with fantastic expertise that we want recognise and provide inspiration to others and this is a great forum to do that. I was so impressed last year with the backgrounds and achievements of all the winners and am looking forward to seeing our entrants this year." Catherine Schlieben, HR Director Group Operations and Talent Acquisition, Worldpay

Nominations open online on 3rd September via WeAreTechWomen. Nominations will close after a four-week period on 28 September.

A shortlist of 200 women from a range of technology disciplines will be chosen in October by an esteemed panel of judges. There will also be a shortlist of three champions, companies and networks.

The shortlist will then be published in November when the TechWomen100 and Network of the Year will open for public votes of support.

All winners will be announced in December. There will be 100 winners of the TechWomen100, a Champion of the Year, a Company of the Year and a Network of the Year.

All winners will be invited to celebrate their awards at a prestigious reception in January 2019.
