WomenTech Network announced the finalists for its upcoming award ceremony that will celebrate 100,000 women, minorities, and allies in tech.
WomenTech, the world’s largest community for women in tech with more than 4,300 ambassadors representing 161 countries, named New Signature’s Regional Operations Lead Stephanie F. Hilton, as a finalist to be recognized at the largest virtual awards live celebration in technology for women, minorities and their allies, WomenTech Global Awards 2020, on December 3rd across 16 time zones.
2238 contestants from 153 countries in 22 categories
New Signature’s Stephanie F. Hilton earned the finalist spot in the Diversity & Inclusion Initiative of the Year for her work spearheading GET IT, a women’s resource group at New Signature. The winners will be announced on Dec. 3 at the WomenTech Global Awards 2020.
“I’m so excited to act as a representative of the GET IT team as a finalist for this award. It would feel inauthentic to take all the credit for the team’s efforts so I want to make sure that we all share in this recognition. Our group is unique because it’s a grassroots effort – everyone is selflessly participating because they want our company to be the best it can be. Over the past year and a half of our group’s tenure, I have felt a shift in the hearts and minds of almost everyone I interact with on a daily basis. The GET IT team has brought awareness to inequalities and actual changes that we can make to bridge the gaps,” said Stephanie F. Hilton.
“I’m extremely proud of the work we’ve done and for the achievements we will inevitably reach in the future. It’s undeniable that we are all more successful when we’re part of a diverse and inclusive group. I’m so proud to be part of the team trying to make the Microsoft Business group the best place to work for all.”
The celebration and conference will be accessible virtually on modern technology provided by Hopin, and give access to top names in the industry and besides awarding ceremonies, the finalists and guests will be able to attend motivating keynotes, engaging discussions, and virtual face-to-face networking with people from all over the world across 16 time zones from the comfort of their home.
The WomenTech Global Awards 2020 are a natural continuation of the WomenTech Global Conference 2020, the largest virtual conference for women in tech.
When COVID-19 was dominating the news and everybody was isolated at home back in March, Anna and her team decided to demonstrate how women were persevering. They created a space for +100 000 women in tech, minorities, and allies from 181 countries to get together, collaborate, and find ways to innovate and adapt to the new world created by the pandemic.
“After the WomenTech Global Conference 2020, we received tons of positive feedback, many sharing about their hardships with uncertainty, job security and work-life-balance while working remotely and how the community inspired them to overcome them,” Anna Radulovski said.
“We understand the importance of celebrating small and big successes while adapting to a life in a digital-first world. This is why we want to give visibility and recognition to accomplished and aspiring female tech leaders as well as allies, working toward a more equal and inclusive world.”
