Our Community Awards

Our popular annual community awards program recognizes up-and-coming women who are successfully establishing their careers in a variety of technology positions.

Amid a shortage of women pursuing technology-related degrees, and technology careers in general, AWT is committed to recognizing California women who have chosen to enter the tech industry and are making great strides with achievements in key competencies such as collaboration, creativity, innovation, leadership, and transformation.

We carefully select amongst each year’s list of nominees 3 total winners from 2 categories – Rising Stars and Outstanding Executives. 

Winners will be announced and recognized at the AWT Annual Recognition & Fundraising Gala event. This year’s gala is held on October 13, 2022 at the Irvine Marriott.

Do you know someone who embodies the essence of a Rising Star or an Outstanding Executive in Tech?

Rising Stars

Women who are in beginning or mid-level management positions, who demonstrate true potential for success in their field and constantly challenge themselves to step outside of their comfort zone.

Outstanding Executives 

Women who are in senior-level management positions (Director and above) and have been in the technology field for 10+ years. Outstanding executives are individuals who are highly successful, community-driven, and constantly finding ways to pay it forward and give back to the community.

Candidates for both award categories may be nominated by a co-worker, business colleague, or any individual knowledgeable of the nominee’s qualifications for this recognition.
