About the awards

Once a year we gather together to recognize and celebrate the role models, who inspire and lead the movement for more women in tech in the Nordic countries. We highlight the good examples and the success stories to inspire a new generation of women who want to take on the challenging and exciting path in the tech industry. By honoring the people that pave the way for women in tech, we want to show that everyone is welcome and can realise their potential and dreams.

The process

Nominations We collect nominations on our website until July 31. Nominees are going to be announced after the deadline for the nominations. Everyone can nominate a person that is an inspiration or is an example to others, and tell us more about why they nominate this person. Jury and shortlist of nominees We announce the judges board on July 16. The board together with representatives from WonderCoders will carefully deliberate on all the nominations received. They will select 5 nominees for each category, consequently creating the shortlist of nominees. Judges voting The judges board will vote one winner per category from the shortlist of nominees. The board will vote online on our platform between September 28th and October 25th. People’s Choice Award A month prior to the award ceremony, we will open for voting the People’s Choice Award. Here anyone would be able to vote for one of the shortlisted nominees. Awards ceremony The winners of all categories and the People’s Choice Award will be presented at the online ceremony on November 12th. See the event day program.
