One week to go until nominations close | TechWomen100 Awards 2021

TechWomen100 One Week Left

Just one week to go until nominations close for the TechWomen100 Awards 2021.

Our awards focus solely on women working in tech below director level. We hope that by highlighting the accolades of up-and-coming inspirational female tech talent, we can help to create a new generation of female role models for the industry, and a pipeline of future leaders.

The awards also feature a “Global Award for Achievement” category, to help expand our search for global talent. This category is a female individual who works within the tech industry outside of the UK, whose current position is below director level.

Through the awards, we 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 the female tech talent.

Finally, we 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 our awards.

Nominations close at 23:59 (BST) on 10 September 2021. Don’t miss your chance to nominate amazing women, Champions, Networks and Companies!
