You can make a difference…
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.
Your contribution is essential for the ongoing operation of AWT and our ability to host engaging forums and fundraisers.
AWT sponsorship levels are designed to work with your sponsorship goals, giving you and/or your company exposure to this diverse community.
**Donors receive all the same benefits as sponsors EXCEPT the complimentary fundraiser admissions. You may request to direct a portion of your donation toward the purchase of event attendance. Per IRS regulations, the value of these “goods & services” will be noted on the receipt.**
**Company logo submission: Vector files (EPS) are preferred, but a larger PNG or JPEG file will work as well.**
Advancing Women in Technology (AWT) is a non-profit organization whose mission is dedicated to the advancement of women in technology through the endowment of educational scholarships and the creation of opportunities to enhance personal and professional growth, working closely with the business community to facilitate diversity and inclusion.
The cornerstone of our organization is our educational scholarship program. Since 2007, AWT’s mission has been to raise college scholarship funds for deserving young women pursuing technology‐related degrees at California colleges, helping them to realize their dream careers. At the awards event in 2020 we gave out $75,000 in scholarships to 10 very impressive young women.
All of your sponsorship dollars stay at the local level because the organization is managed solely by part-time volunteers. Your support in the way of contributions to AWT will help us continue to provide education, mentoring and networking activities for our community.
We thank you, in advance, for supporting our mission!
