2021 Women Tech Awards

This year, we had hundreds of nominees from throughout the technology industry. Each one was proof that despite the Female Recession and Great Resignation, women are strong, vibrant, and doing incredible things in our tech community. In honor of these and all the women throughout the technology community, please join our Acceleration Challenge to accelerate the careers of women in tech in every stage of the technology pipeline. Whether it’s mentoring someone, giving a colleague a stretch project for more visibility, or expanding your network to include new faces, we challenge and invite you to find something you can do to elevate and accelerate the women around you in tech fields.

Among all of these amazing women, these award recipients show impact women are creating for themselves, their teams, their organizations, and our community.
