Learn about our Awards Program
Our popular annual awards program recognizes up-and-coming women who are successfully establishing their careers in a variety of technology positions, such as engineering, software development, business analytics and management.
Amid a shortage of women pursuing STEM degrees, and technology careers in general, AWT is committed to recognizing California women who have chosen to enter the tech industry and are poised for success in key areas such as collaboration, creativity, innovation, leadership and transformation.
Rising Women in Technology
Women in technology-related positions who are demonstrating true potential for success in their field and have been recently promoted and/or achieved a significant accomplishment in the current year.
Outstanding Executives in Technology
Women who have been in the technology field for 10+ years and have achieved a level of success based on their employer’s or other organization’s criteria.
Candidates for both award categories may nominate themselves or be nominated by a co-worker, business colleague or any individual capable of identifying the nominee’s qualifications for this recognition.
