- Deadline for nominations: Friday, Jan. 18, 2019
Women have been among the “hidden figures” in technology throughout history, offering little encouragement to girls and young women to enter the scientific fields. In recent years, a worldwide groundswell of advocacy has led to more participation by females in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields.
SiliconCaribe, a longtime proponent of Caribbean Women in Tech wants to not only recognize them, but illuminate paths for more and more women professionals in the sector. Its first annual Caribbean Women in Tech to Watch list will show the world what Caribbean women have done, can do, and will continue to do to uplift the region with STEM pursuits.
All are invited to nominate themselves, their colleagues, or anyone they feel is worthy of consideration! The categories are:
- Corporate: Large Business
- Corporate: Small/Medium sized business
- Solopreneur / Consultant
- STEM Leadership
- Unsung Hero
- Rising Star
A complete entry form, category listing and descriptions are found at SiliconCaribe.com. Nominations are open through Friday, January 18, 2019 at 9pm EST via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
