The 2020 Diversity In Tech Awards™ is Going Virtual!

The Diversity In Tech Awards™ in its 5th year celebrates those that have championed the nationwide movement to increase diversity across the technology industry. This event will now take place in a virtual format during the week of October 5, 2020 - October 9, 2020. Mark your calendars!

More details will be released as we get closer to the event. Meanwhile, please follow our social media accounts for updates on this event.

Among other massive social and economic disruptions, the COVID-19 crisis has laid bare the deep inequities in our nation’s educational system and how they impact students of color. That is why it’s even more important for the Diversity In Tech Awards™ to once again be a visible platform where leaders convene to focus on solutions to the lack of diversity and inclusion in tech and STEM.
