To celebrate International Women’s Day (IWD), SheCanCode, a leading advocate for women and non-binary individuals in the tech industry, is proud to announce the launch of the inaugural Power Up Awards 2024.

These awards are designed to shine a spotlight on undiscovered women in tech who are making significant contributions to the sector and to provide them with the recognition they deserve.

The Power Up Awards have been established to identify and celebrate women in tech who are accomplishing remarkable feats, offering them a platform for the industry to acknowledge and celebrate their achievements.

Powered by sponsors Natilik and TechRedefined, this initiative aims to highlight the diverse talents and contributions of women in technology and to inspire others to pursue careers in this field.

"Our goal with the Power Up Awards is to recognise and celebrate the incredible women who are driving innovation and making a positive impact in the tech industry," said Kayleigh Bateman, Content Director, at SheCanCode.

"We believe that by showcasing their achievements, we can inspire future generations of women to pursue careers in technology and help to create a more inclusive and diverse industry."

The SheCanCode Power Up Awards 2024 feature a diverse range of categories celebrating women's achievements and contributions in the tech sector. These categories include both individual and company-specific options, such as Best In-House Recruiter, Female CTO of the Year, Best Internship Programme, and Tech Not-For-Profit of the Year.

The awards process will involve judges reading and pre-scoring all entries submitted via the online form. Entries with the highest scores will be entered for the shortlist, which will be released for a public vote via the SheCanCode website. The final winners for each category will be selected based on the results of the public vote and the judges' deliberations.
