Diversity Employer of the Year
The diversity employer of the year will be doing industry-leading work in building an atmosphere in which a diverse workforce can thrive and prosper. This being the Women in Channel Awards, the emphasis of this success will be on building an environment that promotes the talents of women.
Best Community Outreach Programme
Attracting more young people into STEM - and the technology industry specifically - is one of the country's most pressing challenges. Not enough girls in particular are pursuing a career in tech. This award will go to a vendor that is doing its bit to tackle this issue head-on through community outreach.
The tech channel, like many other industries, remains male-heavy. This award will go to an organisation with a strong track record of nurturing female talent. The winner will demonstrate either that they have a relatively high percentage of females both across their business, and in executive positions, or that they are making strong headway in this area.
