The #TechDiversity Awards recognise individuals and groups that have demonstrated leadership and embraced inclusion by raising awareness and promoting diversity initiatives and programs. These people have displayed outstanding expressions of leadership, behavior, initiatives, commitment and courage, key touchstones needed to embrace inclusion and drive diversity.
I am delighted to officially announce that nominations are now open for the 2021 #TechDiversity awards. We did not host the awards in 2020 due to the pandemic and are going ‘all out’ to make sure the 2021 #TechDiversity Awards will be a night to remember. It will be a true celebration of the individuals and organisations championing diversity and inclusion.
