There is currently a gap in recognising the achievements made by the telecoms and tech sector in empowering women in telecoms and closing the gender diversity gap. More than ever, there is a need to facilitate conversation and share successes made by our industry with the aim of encouraging wider adoption of these effective initiatives and to nurture new talent through its doors. The solution? The Global Women in Telco & Tech Summit and Awards. A day of engaging exchange and discussion, followed by a night of celebration and distinction. Bringing together all areas of the wider telecoms and tech industry.
By day – The Summit
Join the discussion during the inaugural Global Women in Telco & Tech Summit with a range of topics such as successful recruitment and top-down initiatives, mentorship programmes, training and development, to building a career in telecoms and technology. In addition, network with the various leadership teams, heads, managers, executives, new graduates and university students on the subject of diversity.
By night – The Awards
The Global Women in Telco & Tech Awards will be the first global awards celebrating achievements made by companies, individuals and industry partners in the area of gender parity. Align yourself, your brand and your company to the diversity agenda and demonstrate that diversity, equality and inclusion are at your core as a business. Don’t miss this opportunity to spotlight the amazing talent of women in telecoms and tech, boost your credibility with partners and employees and validate your mission or your company’s mission to achieve a gender balanced workforce.
Judged by an independent panel of leading industry analysts, the awards will bring together key global players across the wider telecoms and tech ecosystem to honour accomplishments. Categories include rising star, woman of the year and best marketing or social media campaign.

An industry in transition
#EachforEqual was the theme for this year’s International Women’s Day (IWD). But what does it actually mean? Simply put, we are all equal and individually can do our part in the larger fight for equality.
The message has three central tenets; celebrate women's achievements, raise awareness against bias and take action for equality, all while questioning how we as individuals can help create a gender equal world.
