Scottish Women in Technology Awards Finalists Announced

Scottish Women In Technology Awards 2017: Finalists

The Scottish Women in Technology Awards take place 26th October, Glasgow. From a huge influx of nominations the judges have whittled the numbers down to the finalists below. I’m honoured to have been one of the judges and commend all that entered, with some entries getting 30 plus nominations.

The Scottish Women in Technology Awards champion and celebrate women – and the companies and networks around them – who are achieving success in Scotland’s technology sector.

The awards also celebrate the success of those in education who drive grassroots initiatives and grow the technology talent pipeline for Scotland.

Scotland has an abundance of fantastic female role models in technology, however no-one knows about them…yet.

In order for Scotland to make big changes and flood the technology talent pipeline with motivated and passionate females the nation needs to celebrate all of the great work already being done and have a supply of role models for the future.

Scotland does have Technology Awards. However, women are historically underrepresented in every category. The awards will be the first of its kind dedicated to this particular audience, giving more women a chance to shine in the eyes of the nation.

The Awards are also a unique opportunity to showcase the great work being done in education (one of the most essential parts of the talent pipeline for women in technology). The silent runners who work tirelessly in the classrooms and lecture theatres, as well as those volunteers who go above and beyond, to advance young women and those already in technology careers also deserve to be recognised and rewarded.

For those interested in attending the awards and learning more about the invaluable work of SWiT visit the Scottish Women In Technology web site.
