The second iteration of Ireland’s Women in IT Awards, the night was one of celebration and recognition of female representation in IT.

The event was part of Information Age’s wider Women in IT Awards campaign, which was launched in 2015, and also includes ceremonies in London, New York and Singapore.

Women make up just 19% of Ireland’s tech sector, and although Irish women in tech are the second-best paid in the world, their income remains behind their male counterparts, these days by a margin of almost a fifth.

Organised in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), awards on offer last night recognised current trail-blazers within the industry, as well as role models of the future, with categories such as Woman of the Year, Business Leader of the Year, and Rising Star of the Year.

Other sponsors of the ceremony included Google Cloud, Red Hat and Salesforce.

The host for the night was actor Kathriona Deverux, and there was a keynote speech on the night by Accenture Managing Director, Dr Michelle Cullen.
