The Diversity in Tech Awards takes place today, 10th of November 2020, at 5pm GMT. Now in its 3rd year, the event celebrates the best in tech, and highlights the achievements of organisations in promoting diversity across the technology sector.
Previously known as the Women in Tech awards, the event has been expanded to recognise diversity in all of its forms. It includes 18 categories with an equal number for both diversity and women in tech.
The Diversity in Tech categories have increased from three to nine categories this year. They include awards for role models in tech, LGBTQ+ inclusion, social mobility, disability inclusion, cultural inclusion, generational inclusion and health and wellness. An overall International Company of the Year and Special Recognition Award have also been added to the broad spectrum of categories.
