The Women in IT Awards are now accepting nominations for its third annual ceremony which will take place at the InterContinental London Park Lane on 26 January 2017.

The Women in IT Awards, organised by business-technology magazine Information Age, is the world’s leading event showcasing the achievements and innovation of women in technology.

It seeks to tackle technology’s gender imbalance – only 16% of IT roles are occupied by women – by identifying new role models and promoting dialogue around diversity among industry influencers.

Do you want to put yourself forward as a role model, while simultaneously having your achievements publicly celebrated? Or do you know someone else who should be recognised? Nominate now!

All nominations can be done on the website: There is no cost to nominate and the deadline is Friday 19 August 2016. The categories are below. Good luck!
