WeAreTechWomen is delighted to invite you to our TechWomen100 Award Ceremony


The TechWomen100 awards are the first of their kind to focus solely on the female tech talent pipeline and to also recognise the impact of champions, companies and networks that are leading the way for future generations of tech talent.

Since August 2018, WeAreTechWomen has been searching the UK for the best female tech talent in the country. With the support of headline sponsor Worldpay,

In its second year, the awards headline sponsored by Worldpay received over 500 nominations from across the UK and Northern Ireland. Over 30,000 public votes of support were received for the 200 shortlisted nominees. In November, the shortlist was judged once more to help us identify our TechWomen100 winners.
 
We are delighted to invite you to celebrate the achievements of these remarkable women who are not only role models for the industry, but who are our future leaders of tomorrow. We do hope you can join us to celebrate their success and toast their achievements.
