• Women in Technology - Company Award
The Women in Technology – Company Award will recognise a company which has demonstrated a strong commitment to attracting, retaining and developing women across its workforce.

Women are under-represented in the technology sector with only 19% of women employed in technology companies or in ICT roles in other industries. However a strong representation of women is needed to increase the participation of women in senior roles and on boards, to ensure an adequate pool of talent, to foster innovation and to connect with female consumers who make the majority of buying decisions. Increasing the number of women in technology has the potential to boost company performance and foster more inclusive workplaces.
