Women Leading tech awards in partnership with Google

CELEBRATING WOMEN LEADING TECH

 

Technology is all-pervasive; it’s imagining, designing and building our future at lightning speed. Like never before, technology has presented an opportunity for a brave new world that’s created by all humanity. Unfortunately, not all humanity is being rightly recognised for its contribution in manifesting this new and exciting world.

 

In 2020, B&T is changing that. We’re bringing to the table a new initiative that will acknowledge the substantial contribution of a group that’s often missing from the conversation. Women need to be recognised alongside their peers as leaders in the tech space, and it’s the communication industry’s duty to help write them into the story. Together, we can help cement the place of women as leaders in the tech industry.

 

That’s why we are inviting you to support and shape B&T’s new initiative – the Women Leading Tech Awards, in partnership with Google, to be held on April 8 in Sydney. Help us ensure women working in technology are part of history, not forgotten, and rightly recognised for their significant contributions to the industry.
