2020 wasn’t really a good year for anyone. Between the pandemic and the constant stream of bad news, most of us are looking forward to a brighter 2021.
And what better way to kickstart your 2021 than with a prestigious award.
We’ve already launched our Women Leading Tech Awards for 2021, following the success of the inaugural event last year.
In case you missed it, we decided to start the Women Leading Tech awards last year as a way to recognise all the fantastic female technologists that strive each day to improve the media and marketing industry and promote diversity in these often male-dominated roles.
Like last year, we’ll be handing out awards for Advocacy, Data Science, Design, Engineering, Entrepreneur/Founder, Executive Leader, Marketing, Mentor, Product and Sales.
We also have a couple of new categories in 2021, to recognise those who are working to build our female technology capabilities at the educational level
The new Education Provider category is open to any tertiary education provider which offers STEM based degrees/courses, and has demonstrated a holistic and long-term commitment to the recruitment and retention of female students.
Meanwhile, the Education/Research category is open to women who are currently in roles such as lecturing, researching or teaching within a technology discipline at either high school, tertiary or post graduate levels.
You can find out more about each category in our criteria document here.
We’d also like to give a massive thank you to all of our sponsors who have come on board in support of Women Leading Tech again in 2021.
Think one of these awards sounds right for you?
Better hurry. Entries for the awards close on 1 March, while late entries close at 5pm on Monday 8 March.
We will be releasing our shortlist on Thursday 1 April.
Thanks again to all of our sponsors for supporting this important initiative.
