Nordic Women in Tech Awards

NWiTA is an annually organized event by Wonder Coders to recognize, celebrate and award the female role models, who inspire and lead the movement for more women in tech in the Nordic countries. Our goal is to highlight the outstanding female figures and share their successful stories with the general public, in order to attract & inspire the new generation of women wanting to take on the challenging and exciting path in the tech industry.

By honouring those, who pave the path for more female presence in tech, we want to help women realize their potential and turn their career dreams into real life-goals. And at the same time show them that everyone is welcome!

From nominations to awards

We begin by opening the nominations on April, 15th. Everyone (including you!) can nominate an inspiring person from the tech industry in several categories on this page. All you need to do is to tell us who you are nominating and why they deserve to be awarded – in other words, the most essential information about the nominee for us!

We collect the nomination until the July, 31st. After the deadline, the short list of nominees will be selected from all of the received nominations during the nomination period. The representatives from Wonder Coders will select 5 nominees per each category.

Between the 28th September and 25th October, the official, carefully selected NWiTA jury will be voting online on our platform to choose 1 final winner per category.

People's Choice Award and celebration

You can vote too!

A month prior to the awards ceremony, on the 4th October, the public voting will open for the category People Choice Award. Anyone can vote here for their favourite role model from all the shortlisted nominees.

Save the date: November 11!

All the winners will be publicly announced and awarded during our final ceremony.

Whether the event will be online as in 2020 or physical as previous editions will highly depend on the current development of the pandemic. Thus, the specific details regarding the final event location are yet to be announced – as we expect, at the end of the summer.

Who is your female role model in tech?

Do you know any outstanding women in the Nordics tech scene who acted as role models and inspired you or others?

We believe that your role models deserve appreciation, respect, and acknowledgment.

We encourage you to nominate them so we can celebrate them together!
