The everywoman in Technology Awards seek to recognise and celebrate the success of women working in this fast-growth sector, encouraging more women into the industry and ultimately providing a pipeline of talent and future industry leaders.
This Awards programme, which will culminate in a glittering awards ceremony on 29 March 2012 at The Savoy, was created to showcase the diverse range of careers technology offers, profiling the women leading these exciting careers and also celebrating the businesses that are investing in their female talent.
Commenting about the everywoman in Technology Awards, Maxine Benson, MBE, Co-founder and Director of everywoman says; “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.”
