Women in Tech Challenge
The Women in Tech® Challenge, recognised initiatives that have helped improve diversity and promote women empowerment in STEM in 4 different categories. We rewarded success stories that can be scaled-up and replicated in all parts of the world.
Women in Tech® wants to put the spotlight on projects which contribute to bridge the gender gap and that help women and girls embrace Technology.
The Women in Tech® Challenge was a great opportunity for nominees to showcase their projects. The winners and 3 finalists from each category were invited to present their project in Paris.
Diversity and inclusiveness are essential in every industry, and they are critical to tech.
Science and research
The winners were chosen by an international jury of experts. The jury evaluated the impact of the project, the scalability and reproducibility of the initiative, as well as the originality and clarity of the project presentation.
