Organised by Information Age, the Women in IT Awards is the world's largest tech diversity event, providing a high-profile platform for celebrating women in IT and identifying new female role models in the industry.
The awards programme showcases the achievements and innovation of women in IT, and is the technology world’s leading effort to promote dialogue around diversity among key influencers. The 2018 ceremony will be the largest yet – attended by over 1,000 industry leaders.
“Since launching the Women in IT Awards we have been blown away by people’s passion and enthusiasm for this cause, driving the event to an incredible size of over 1,100 attendees in just a few years,” Ben Rossi, Women in IT Awards Founder
The judges noted there were over 700 high-quality submissions across the 19 categories which showcase the achievements and innovation of women in technology and identifies new role models for girls, who made up less than 10% of those who studied A-level computing last year.

I’m very proud Epos Now has been shortlisted alongside some huge players in our industry and it just goes to show positive change can begin at a grassroots level. I’m excited to see how much further we'll have come in another 18 months!” Hayley Johnson, Epos Now’s COO
