EQUALS in Tech Awards 2018
Got a plan to use social media to help women farmers in Kenya predict the weather? Figuring out how to get mobile phones to Native Canadian teen girls in rural towns? Working on reducing the representation and pay gap for women in Silicon Valley? Preventing AI algorithms from perpetuating gender bias? Then EQUALS want to hear from you!
EQUALS is a partnership of 60+ organisations working to promote gender equality online and in the tech sector. Every year, the EQUALS in Tech Awards are given to people who are helping girls and women get equal access, skills, and opportunities online and in the tech industry.
Winners get a paid trip to the awards ceremony in New York City on September 22, but that’s not all. They also get to meet like-minded entrepreneurs, investors, activists, teachers, and leaders. And they join an advisory panel that chooses future award winners.
If you or someone you know is working on a cool project about girls and women in tech, get your nomination in by 20 July through the form. It’s a great way to get the word out about your ideas and achievements!
The deadline for nominations is July 20, 2018.
