Spotlighting Women’s Contributions to Information Technology
Coinciding with Women’s History Month is the 2019 Women in IT New York Summit and Women in IT Awards, launched by Bonhill Group. The information technology field is making strides towards inclusivity, yet the percentage of global female IT leaders remains at 9 percent. According to Small Business Trends, women make up half of the U.S. workforce, but less than 20 percent of the tech jobs.
During the summit, Bonhill Group shines the spotlight on women leading the way in IT with its Women in IT Awards. The awards recognize women in the categories: Advocate of the Year; CIO of the Year; Entrepreneur of the Year; Future CIO of the Year; Business Role Model of the Year; CTO of the Year; Rising Star; and Diversity Initiative of the Year.
