The winners for the inaugural Women in IT Awards Asia have been announced at a gala ceremony at the Shangri-La in Singapore.
Dubbed the smart nation, Singapore was the ideal location to begin the Women in IT Awards’ first move into Asia.
The Women in IT Awards Asia is part of the Women in IT Awards Series, which has established events in Ireland, San Francisco, New York and London. And, planned events in Berlin, Bucharest and Toronto.
The series is part of an ongoing Information Age campaign to tackle technology’s diversity problems. We currently run two further diversity events in the UK: Tomorrow’s Tech Leaders, a careers fair for female university students, and Future Stars of Tech, which identifies and promotes the industry’s top female career climbers.
