Nominations are to cover:
Industry, government and educational experts will review and rate nominations using a ratings model, with the highest average rating selected as our winners.
Absolutely! We want to hear about ALL the great work being done.
Nothing. The cost to make a nomination entry is covered by the sponsorship from our supporters. We purposely want to keep it free, to encourage as many nominations as possible. We want to hear about all the amazing initiatives that are making a contribution for a more diverse and inclusive world.
A TechDiversity Award, lots of free publicity, a summary on our website, but most importantly, the ability to showcase your initiative and inspire other organisations to follow your lead in making diversity, inclusion and belonging a high priority. Your nomination could make a world of difference.
First it will be our judges. However, we also want to shine a light in ALL the initiatives, so we will create a case study that can be used to support other organisations looking for inspiration to start/continue their D&I journey/targets. So hopefully lots of lots of other people will see your submission.
Like all things that are worthwhile doing, it takes a little effort. We estimate approximately 2-3 hours. HOWEVER, you can save and edit, restart, continue and enter information at your own leisure until you feel it is ready to submit. The deadline to hit the submit button is 22nd October.

Size doesn’t matter we accept small to large scale initiatives/projects. What matters is the positive impact of the initiative / project on people and tech workforces.
We are seeking new AND established initiatives (greater than 2 years old). So even if your initiative is less than 12 months old, we want to hear about it and the impact it has had. The judges are also looking for innovation around the initiative itself and many new initiatives may meet this criterion!
Please email your question along with your contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org and someone from the #TD Foundation will contact you to further discuss your nomination and the process.
