Nominations Now Open: AWT 2017 Rising Women and Outstanding Executives in Technology
Advancing Women in Technology (AWT) is pleased to announce that we are now accepting nominations for the 2017 Rising Women in Technology and Outstanding Executives in Technology!
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.
Nominations will be accepted through October 10, 2017, for:
Rising Women in Technology
Women in technology-related positions who are demonstrating a true potential for success in their field and have been recently promoted and/or achieved a significant accomplishment in 2016.
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 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. Past honorees are not eligible.
AWT leadership will screen each nomination and finalists will be notified by a letter of congratulations in October and will be recognized at our 16th Annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser on Thursday, Nov. 9. Award recipients will also be recognized on the AWT website.
