Women Leading Tech Awards Launches In Australia To Tackle Lack Of Diversity In Tech

Leading publication for the communications industry B&T has just launched a new initiative for 2020: Women Leading Tech Awards, in partnership with Google.

This new event will celebrate and recognise all the fantastic female technologists working in Australia and NZ.

Media and the wider communications industry are now defined by technological innovation. Programmatic advertising is a driving force for global ad spend, data is a critical resource for any marketing team, and digitisation has forever changed the way content is shared and consumed.

It's a crazy time and those that can't innovate are being left behind.

Behind these innovative ideas and agile strategies are real people. These people are super talented, extremely resourceful, and are creating a better future for the entire industry.

But gender bias is still a problem for many female technologists working in this exciting space.

That's why we've partnered with Google to deliver Women Leading Tech in 2020. The event is also sponsored by AKQA, Adobe, Publicis Sapient, and CBS Interactive.

As part of the celebration, we will be giving out a few awards to recognise some of the fantastic female leaders working in technology roles or companies.

For the inaugural year there will be 10 categories:

  • Entrepreneur/Founder
  • Executive Leader
  • Product
  • Engineering
  • Data Science
  • Design
  • Sales
  • Marketing
  • Mentor
  • Advocacy
