What is the Top 50 Most Powerful Women in Technology Award?

The Top 50 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.
