The Women in Digital Awards were founded in 2018 based on the idea ‘you can’t be what you can’t see.’
We believe that unless we have more visible role models in digital and technology we won’t change the status quo. By shining a light on industry leaders, we shine a light on the career pathways and possibilities that digital and technology provides to women.
In 2023 we had 15 award categories to nominate an outstanding woman (or team), or nominate yourself for one (or two) of the categories below.
This category celebrates an impact-orientated individual that is driving change and social good by either harnessing the power of digital or improving the digital industry.
