Women in Tech Challenge

(Cet événement est en anglais seulement)

The Women in Tech® Challenge, will recognise initiatives that have helped improve diversity and promote women empowerment in Technology in 5 different categories. It will be rewarding success stories that can be scaled-up and replicated in all parts of the world.

The Women in Tech® Challenge will be a great opportunity for nominees to showcase their projects. The winners and 3 finalists from each category will be invited to present their project at the VivaTech conference in Paris.

The technological ecosystem must be representative of all populations for our future to be just and successful. Careers in STEM should be among the most sought after in the context of the 4th Industrial Revolution. There is an urgent need to build a pipeline of skilled women if we want them to play an active role in the sector. Diversity and inclusiveness are essential in every industry, and they are critical to tech.

You can apply to the Women in Tech® Challenge by filling in the online application form before the 30th of March 2019.

The winners will be chosen by an international jury of experts. The jury will evaluate the impact of the project, the scalability and reproducibility of the initiative, as well as the originality and clarity of the project presentation. The award ceremony will be held in Paris, 15 May 2019.
