Women in Technology (WIT) is delighted to announce that nominations are now open (Monday, June 15 - Friday, Aug. 7) for the 2015 Women of the Year (WOTY) Awards. Sponsored by Cox Automotive, a leading provider of digital marketing, wholesale and e-commerce solutions across the automotive industry, WOTY celebrates women technology executives for their accomplishments as leaders in business, visionaries of technology and women who make a difference in their communities.

“Being recognized with the 2014 WOTY Award was such an amazing honor,” said Barnard.  “Through this experience, I have been inspired by the important contributions women are making in their businesses and their communities. I am excited to act as the Co-Chair of this year’s WOTY event and offer Cox Automotive’s support as presenting sponsor.  We are committed to investing in efforts that recognize leadership, innovation and educational initiatives that position women for future career success.”

SANDY D. WELFARE, WIT Executive Director
"WIT's Women of the Year winners are the reason why Georgia has so many companies moving to our state. Their leadership has propelled Georgia businesses to be well-positioned for the technology disruption taking place in the metro Atlanta region, throughout our nation and around the world. The WOTY awards is an opportunity to acknowledge women at the front lines of the 21st century technology evolution."
To qualify, nominees must hold business or STEM leadership roles within a technology organization in Georgia or they must maintain STEM leadership positions within a non-technology organization. Winners will be announced in three categories:
