2017 Scotland Women in Technology Awards
Digital Xtra Fund is excited to announce that nominations are now open for the inaugural Women in Technology Awards hosted by Scotland Women in Technology! The awards are for any individual or group operating in the technology sector or in technology education in Scotland. The awards recognise those who possess the drive, commitment, and passion to further the technology agenda.
This event will showcase the vast amount of talent working in the Scottish technology sector and also uncover the inspirational people in education who are working hard to develop a pipeline of talented females to meet industry demands of the future. There is an exciting range of 10 award categories and nominations are open to everyone (participants are also actively encouraged to self-nominate). Digital Xtra Fund is particularly interested in the ‘Rising Star’ and ‘Employer of the Year’ categories.
Becoming a finalist for the awards will showcase fantastic female role models in the sector, highlight the great work already happening across Scotland to promote gender diversity in the technology sector, and will work towards encouraging more girls and young women to consider a career in tech.

All categories will be judged initially by the Scotland Women in Technology Board with the final list of nominees being evaluated by an independent judging panel of industry experts not associated with SWiT or its associated companies.
