FIT and Women in IT Awards 2018: Promoting Female Champions in Ireland

With just under 19% of Ireland’s tech sector being female, the Women in IT Awards programme has come to the region for the first time to highlight the women in technology paving the way. Encouragingly Irish women in IT 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 Asia, Ireland and San Francisco 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.

We strongly encourage you to nominate your female champions to help lead the way in achieving greater diversity in Ireland’s tech sector.
