#addher awards 2023
In a true #addher spirit we want to highlight amazing IT & Tech women across Sweden. For the second time we launched #addher awards. Where you could nominate your favorites in one or several of our 5 categories. Together we provide visibility and put the spotlight on Sweden’s IT & Tech women that stand out.
#addher, is a network for women in the IT/Tech industry. It was launched in 2010 by Sogeti and is since 2019 run by Sogeti and sister company Capgemini. The network has grown substantially throughout the years and is today one of Sweden's largest networks for women in the IT/Tech industry. The overall goal of #addher is to get our fantastic IT women to take place, in all roles, make them more visible and to attract more women to our industry.
In #addher Awards YOU could get involved and contribute to making Sweden's IT/Tech women more visible and in this way provide extra visibility to women who inspire and engage. Both women and men could, of course, nominate one or more women in each category. This year's nomination period closed on November 19th but remember to register for your local #addher awards ceremony event.
