Women in Tech Awards Jury

To keep the awards selection objective  WomenTech Network did not accept Award sponsorship from nominated companies and their representatives. Also, Jury members were not allowed to vote in categories if there is a potential conflict of interest. The overall selection process heavily relied on and took into consideration the details of each nomination, the public voting, submission of materials,  independent research by our jury.


The jury members will be announced shortly.
