Last day to nominate for the Everywoman in Tech Awards

The deadline for FDM’s Everywoman in Technology Awards has been extended to Monday 17th of October.

This is your last chance to nominate inspirational women in tech for the FDM Everywoman in technology awards, in association with TechUK.

Nominations for the awards will close at midnight on October 17th 2016.

Everywoman runs the women in Technology Awards each year to showcase the great women who are making a difference to the technology insustry.

Nominations are free to make, and women can be nominated here.

Everywoman hopes that by making the inspirational women in technology more visible, more women will be encouraged to enter the IT industry as they will be more aware of the types of careers the sector has to offer.

Entries for the Everywoman women in Technology Awards can be made for women at any stage in their tech careers, from startup founders to managers to technology leaders.

As there is still a lack of women  in the technology industry, Everywoman aims to promote the role models already existing in the industry to attract more female talent and rewards those already in the industry for their hard work.
