“Globant’s Women that Build Awards are extremely important because it allows us to recognize those women who have been at the forefront of the tech industry either in leadership positions, founding a technological startup, or promoting it through social networks, and inspire other women who are entering this field or struggling to grow in their professional career,” said Patricia Pomies, Chief Operating Officer at Globant. “We want to congratulate all the winners for their achievements and for opening the door and inspiring many other women to educate and work in STEAM fields.”
“With the commitment of working to build bridges within the IT industry, we have developed this initiative honouring who these women are, especially when it comes to leadership,” explained Melina Masnatta, Learning & DEI Global Director. “For this reason, we have worked intensively in improving the Women that Build Awards each year in order to offer more value and create more opportunities for the women who are part of the awards, and for those who are interested in the industry by generating new data to understand the challenges of the ecosystem, accompanying, training, and opening networking opportunities in different channels to reach many people. This is not only an award, but it is also the chance to transform the access to leadership of those who are not a majority in the industry today.”
This year’s Women that Build Awards counted with global partners such as Salesforce, Voces Vitales, and Women Economic Forum Argentina; sponsors such as NYSE, CoachHub, and Udemy, and more than 35 supporting associations.
Winners will join together in a Global leadership program and will earn two exclusive licences from CoachHub and Udemy, reaching an investment of 60,000USD, so that each winner can use it according to their language, needs, and career projections.
“More women than ever before are successfully training and working in the STEAM fields, now that technology has become more pervasive worldwide. We are at a crucial moment in the IT industry wherein we can leverage this existing momentum and create a new reality by further boosting the participation of women in the space,” said Wanda Weigert, Chief Brand Officer at Globant. “With our Women that Build Awards, we want to promote a message of courage and determination in a sector that is realising higher levels of gender equality every day.”
