The second everywoman in Technology Awards is now open for entry.
The everywoman in Technology Awards, supported by Women in Technology, seek to recognise and celebrate the success of women working in the technology sector, encouraging more women into the industry and ultimately providing a pipeline of talent and future industry leaders.
“Technology has paved the way for thousands of businesses to succeed and develop in ways they might never have imagined. These awards are vital to both celebrate the extraordinary talent in the sector and also to ensure we have a generation of bright women who are attracted to the sector because of the outstanding opportunities it offers,” says Maxine Benson, MBE, co-founder and director of female business community everywoman.
