2022 Women In Technology Awards
By Amy Townsend
Aragon Research began our Women-In-Technology (WIT) awards in 2017. That means this is our sixth year of recognizing women who are contributing to the technology industry!
This blog gives an overview of our WIT awards, the selection criteria, award categories, and how to submit a nomination.
What are the Women-In-Technology Awards?
Aragon started our Women-In-Technology awards to support diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the workplace.
The Aragon Research Women-In-Technology award reflects the achievements of women who have demonstrated outstanding personal and professional growth and significantly contributed to the technology industry.
Winners of this award also have the option to join our women-in-technology committee. Our committee members vote for future winners, are invited to our annual Aragon Transform event, and are introduced to a lifelong community of fellow women-in-technology peers.
We also publish a “7 questions with _____” blog for each winner. Here are some examples of our previous winner blogs:
- 7 Questions With Fuze’s Payal Cudia
- 7 Questions With Vbrick System’s Shelly Heiden
- 7 Questions With Cisco’s Aruna Ravichandran
