Judges 2022

At Nordic Women in Tech Awards we have a Local and a Global Judging committee.

The Local Judging committee will identify the 5 shortlisted nominees in each of the 10 categories. They will be voting only for nominees in their respective country.

The Global Judging committee will be voting for the winner in each category, among all shortlisted nominees, despite the country the judge represents.

We are proud to have a judging committee that consists of highly accomplished individuals whose work have had a real impact on the tech industry.

Focusing on diversity, we have invited founders, innovators, CEOs, leaders and tech experts. They are spread across different fields like AI, robotics, telecommunications, consultancy etc.

We trust that they will ensure the most objective selection process of finalists and winners in each category.
