The search is over for the FDM everywoman in Technology Awards 2016 with a total of eleven awards up for grabs.
The areas to be honoured include the following:-
- Unconventional design and implementation.
- Start-up companies under 18 months old
- Rising stars, woman under the age of 26
- Digital/social experts
Currently women only account for about 15% of the IT workforce and it is hoped that events such as this one that recognise woman in the workplace will help to increase interest by woman in the field and generate more diversity in the workplace.
Entries were open until 27th October 2015 and the award ceremony will take place in London at the Hilton on Park Lane on the 23rd February 2016 which will be attended by around five hundred industry leaders. The awards are a prelude to a forum for female techies, which is due to launch in February 2016.
