With just under 19% of Ireland’s tech sector being female, the Women in IT Awards programme has come to the region for the second time to highlight the women in technology paving the way.
Encouragingly Irish women in tech are the second-best paid in the world, however they still lag massively behind their male counterparts by almost a fifth when it comes to pay.
Since its launch in 2015 the Women in IT Awards have showcased women in technology in London and New York, with new launches in Singapore, Toronto and Berlin planned. Organised by business-technology site Information Age, the Women in IT Awards Ireland acts as a flagship and high-profile platform to support the industry in its mission to move the dial on gender.
Offering a series of awards, ranging from CIO of the year through to Rising Star, the programme provides a platform to identify females at all levels achieving great things in Ireland.
Already recognised as a leading the way in achieving diversity in the tech sector, the Women in IT programme’s expansion is set to continue as it continues with its mission to achieve gender parity in the technology sector.
