Nominations Will be Accepted Until Monday, August 10, 2015 @ 5 PM
If you missed the deadline to nominate an outstanding leader in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM), there is still time! Women in Technology (WIT) will continue to accept nominations through a SHORT FORM until Monday, August 10, 2015 @ 5PM.
WIT’s annual Women of the Year Awards, presented by Cox Automotive, is WIT’s signature gala and dinner that celebrates women STEM executives for their accomplishments as leaders in the industry and in their communities.
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:
- Large/Enterprise Business, representing companies with more than 2,500 employees
- Medium/Mid-Size Business, representing companies with 251 to 2,500 employees and Educational Institutions
- Small/Emerging Business, representing companies with 250 employees or less
Individuals can be nominated by peers or friends, or nominate themselves. Once selected as a nominee, a long form detailing accomplishments is required for judging. A selection committee comprised of former finalists, technology executives and representatives of WIT narrow the pool of nominees to three finalists in each of the three categories, based on the merits of their applications.
One winner from each category will be announced at the Thursday, November 19, 2015 gala event at the Georgia Aquarium.
