Women in Tech
Read Time, 2 min.

Are you a woman in tech who consistently inspires others?  

According to Accenture, only 21% of women believe the technology industry is a place where they can thrive. So, for our inaugural Power Women in Tech award, we’re searching for women leaders at our partner organisations who can inspire other women to go further in technology. 

Our winners will be role models who have forged an extraordinary professional path leveraging or developing tech innovations and are actively contributing to the promotion of women and girls in STEM careers in their country.  


With this award, Microsoft Ireland wants to spotlight and celebrate the talented women working in our partner organisations, and to inspire the next generation of women leaders in tech.

Martina Naughton, Global Partner Sales Director at Microsoft Ireland. 

In Codec, we’re committed to growing the number of women in technology. We have put many initiatives in place to support our female employees to realise their full potential. Keeping women in the workplace makes sense, diversity adds competitive advantage.

 — Fiona Daly, CFO, Codec


By awarding these trailblazing women, we aim to celebrate talented women in tech across our partner organisations, giving winners an elevated platform to amplify the people and initiatives that are important to them. 

When it comes to tech, you need to really see it to supercharge it, so let’s spark inspiration today.
