Davidson Technology sponsored this year’s Women in Technology (WIT) Awards for the eighth consecutive year. The gala awards event in Brisbane in September and saw a host of women making huge strides in the world of tech being honoured.
“We have seen some amazing women recognised at this year’s awards and it is such an honour to be a part of that and supporting them,” said Davidson technology general manager (Queensland) Allison Huf. “Women have a lot of value to offer this industry and I think we need to be really focusing and re-energising women to see the future of technology.
“Events such as these provide a chance to see women being really awarded and rewarded for all of their hard work in the past 12 months and to raise the profile of women in technology because they are achieving some incredible things,” she added. “From women working on unlocking the mysteries of breast cancer to those who have led the digital transformation of whole businesses, to pioneers in software development, the work being done out there by women in tech is truly astonishing and we are proud to support them.”
This year’s awards again saw a very impressive line-up of women named as winners for their trail-blazing, paradigm-shifting work within the technology sector. Davidson technology’s client solutions director Adam Passonnii said the company works hard to ensure women are supported in their endeavours in the field of technology.
“As an organisation we recognise the valuable contribution made by women to the technology sector and we do a lot of work around getting more females into the digital world,” Adam said. “Davidson is committed to achieving gender diversity within our own organisation, but also helping other companies to recognise the benefits of a diverse workforce and this should include strong representation from women.
“The opportunity to support and honour women this sector is something we are happy to embrace.”
