National Diversity & Leadership Conference Announces the Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Tech
The National Diversity Council will host the 2020 National Diversity and Leadership Conference virtually on October 27-28, 2020, and November 4-5,2020. This year’s theme is “Inclusion - Maximizing Your Talent”. This virtual conference will feature big-name keynote speakers such as Donna Brazile, Anne Chow, Tony Plana, Carly Fiorina and more. During the conference, professionals will gain access to learning sessions held by industry experts, organizational tracks, and endless inspiration that highlight the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
The Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Tech Award specifically recognizes the achievements of women who are breaking barriers and setting high standards for themselves and others. Women in the technology industry face unique challenges, and we hope to inspire young women to face such hurdles with confidence and pursue their dreams in the technology industry.
Every year, the National Diversity Council compiles a list of the Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Technology to feature the highest caliber of executive female leaders within the technology industry. These women are the most prominent leaders, and they have reached the top of their profession by being effective leaders in their organization. They drive change, innovate, and inspire others to succeed while contributing to business growth.
Selection to the list was based on the following criteria:
- Top leader in her organization and profession
- Directly contributes to business growth or strategic direction of the organization
- Maintains a record of accomplishments in areas of expertise
- Effective role model who inspires other women and is active in mentoring the next generation of women in the industry
- Operates with the highest integrity and ethical behavior
- Demonstrates a commitment to corporate citizenship
“The 2020 Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Tech is a true testament to the abilities of women in the workplace,” said Dennis Kennedy, Founder and Chair of the National Diversity Council. “Each year, we are amazed and inspired at the achievements of each awardee. The 2020 class is truly a powerful force.”
