TechWomen100 Awards


After the successful launch of TechWomen50 in 2017, WeAreTechWomen expanded our reach to recognise the achievements of 100 women in tech in 2018.  We also set a strategic objective to use the awards to highlight 1,000 future female tech leaders by 2025. To date, we have celebrated the success of over 275 incredible women, alongside outstanding tech networks, senior champions who are driving change and companies who are doing their upmost to support the careers of their female technologists.

Now in their fourth year, the TechWomen100 awards are once again looking to recognise and celebrate the achievements of women working in technology.

Given our strategic objective of supporting the female pipeline, the activities of WeAreTechWomen and the success of our Rising Star awards, we are proud to host an awards series that showcases emerging tech talent and creates role models for the industry.

Why TechWomen100?


It is no secret that the technology industry lacks female representation at all levels. Women make up just 17 per cent of the industry. There are some fantastic awards for women working in tech, however, most of these focus on senior women.

Whilst we feel it is extremely necessary to highlight senior and influential women, we also believe the pipeline of female technologists need a platform to shine.

This is why the TechWomen100 Awards were created. Our awards focus solely on women working in tech below director level. We hope that by highlighting the accolades of up-and-coming inspirational female tech talent, we can help to create a new generation of female role models for the industry, and a pipeline of future leaders.

The Process


Nominations will open online on 01 August via WeAreTechWomen. Nominations will close after a seven-week period on 20 September.

A shortlist of 200 women from a range of technology disciplines will be chosen in October by an esteemed panel of judges. There will also be a shortlist of three champions, companies and networks.

The shortlist will then be published in November where we will also open the TechWomen100 individual category for public votes of support.

Winners will be announced in December and celebrated at our prestigious award’s ceremony early February. There will be 100 winners of the TechWomen100, a Champion of the Year, a Company of the Year and a Network of the Year.

If you are selected as one of our winners, you will be invited to a prestigious ceremony, with which there is a ticket cost. You will be able to buy individual tickets and/or tables from the WeAreTechWomen website, once the shortlist is announced.
