The Women in Digital Awards was created around the idea that ‘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.
We are fierce advocates of celebrating excellence and know that these awards support self-recognition and belief. In fact, in 2021 over 88% of nominees said that they had more career confidence after completing a Women in Digital awards nomination process.
And really, what human doesn’t want to feel better about their abilities? These awards provide a platform for self-reflection, recognition of achievements and the opportunity for peers to acknowledge and encourage great work.

Self-reflection and recognition.
The nomination process encourages you to pause and think about your achievements and then articulate them.
Get your work out there, and let the success speak volumes about you.
If you become a finalist or winner, you’ll have the industry’s best and brightest learning about the incredible work you do! This is business gold (hello free PR!) for Founders.
By putting yourself forward and showcasing your work in digital and technology you have the opportunity inspire young girls and women to follow in your footsteps and realise a career in technology.
Whether it’s your work wife, inspiring team member, industry partner, customer or just someone you admire from afar, you have the opportunity to easily recognise them for the great work they do with the Women in Digital Awards program.
“The Women in Digital Awards has driven awareness about my career and endeavours! I have received a number of speaking invitations to multiple national conferences and have spoken in front of hundreds of industry leaders. I’ve had the opportunity to increase my reach which has strengthened my position in the Australian technology community.”
“I am beyond grateful to be awarded 2022 Software Engineer of the Year. As I said on the night, I’ve loved coding since I was a kid, the fact that I get to do this as my job feels like a real-life fairy-tale.I hope these awards show women everywhere that there are people like them in the digital industry. Let’s continue to change the world through technology!”
“One of my best friends’ daughters had a hero dress-up day for school. She told her mum that she wanted to dress up like her friend who was on stage winning the digital award (spoiler alert – that’s me!), which absolutely melted my heart. Its moments like that which demonstrate why we all need to nominate ourselves and the ladies in our life for the Women in Digital awards – to show young girls and women that a career in technology can be truly aspirational.”
