The Women Tech Council, a national organization focused on the impact of women in driving high growth for the technology sector, opened registration for the 12th annual Women Tech Awards, a program that recognizes technology-focused women pioneering new technologies, spurring innovation, impacting tech companies and inspiring the technology community.

"Since launching more than a decade ago, these awards have changed the landscape of the technology sector and the career trajectories of hundreds of women and young women," said Cydni Tetro, president of WTC. "The visibility they bring to these innovators and leaders bolsters every other part of the economic pipeline for women in tech by amplifying opportunities at leadership levels and activating more women into technology fields."

The Women Tech Awards has recognized hundreds of women throughout the technology sector and dozens of STEM-focused university students. Bringing visibility and recognition to these women shaping the technology industry accelerates growth for the entire tech sector and inspires future STEM leaders.

A luncheon for the awards will be held October 9, 2019 to honor the 18 finalists at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Tables and tickets can be purchased at www.womentechcouncil.com.
