#addher awards 2022
In a true #addher spirit we want to highlight amazing IT & Tech women across Sweden. For the first time we launched #addher awards. 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, with approximately 7000 members in 17 Swedish locations. 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.
Welcome to join the world premiere of #addher Awards! Here 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 can, of course, nominate one or more women in each category.
Our 5 nomination categories
ROLE MODEL: An IT/Tech woman who inspires and engages, is generous and lifts others through the motto “seen - heard – acknowledged” and is a strong magnet that attracts women to the IT industry. A role model that many would like to have as a mentor and who has a large network. She can be a leader and is otherwise often an informal leader.
VISIONARY: An IT woman who is always at the forefront of the latest technology. She keeps an eye on trends, maybe even creates them herself. She is innovative, driven and leads others forward. She is often a speaker at events as she can wow her audience and with conviction and passion, paints the future.
VALUEMAKER: An IT/Tech woman who delivers. She is passionate about creating value quickly and is the one who manages to get everyone to take joint responsibility and together achieve goals. She is the one who always rolls up her sleeves and make things happen. She is like water and reaches goals regardless of the obstacles that may appear on the road.
SUPERSTAR: An IT/Tech woman who stands out and whose star shine shines brightly in one or more areas. She is a passionate expert that others want to keep up with and learn from. She may have been in the industry for many years or is an up-and-coming rising star. She is knowledgeable, curious and good at sharing her expertise.
ENERGIZER: An IT/Tech woman, full of energy, who everyone wants to work with. She is a team player who makes everyone happy and have fun at work, or in the project. She is one of those who makes it difficult to change employers because you want her near you. She sparkles, spreads joy and gives positive feedback. She is a social genius who stands out and is visible.
We are confident that you immediately think of someone who fits into one of our awards categories; maybe someone at work, an inspirational speaker at an event you've been to, or a beacon within a field of expertise that you follow on social media. The nomination period closed on September 25th. See all nominees here!
Winners both nationally and locally
We will appoint winners both nationally and in all of our 17 #addher locations across the country. To provide visibility to as many as possible and provide nominated women with the possibility to thank the nominating person we will successively add all nominees, the reason behind the nomination and who has nominated on a separate webpage. If you for some reason would like to stay anonymous instead, just write anonymous instead of your name in the nomination form. All nominees will receive a so called flashcard enabling them to proudly show-off their nomination in social media.
A national jury and local jury groups, with participants from different companies and organisations, will be the ones selecting the winner per category and location. Winners were announced both nationally and in each #addher location in Sweden on October 7th.
