In recognising the broad efforts of promoting diversity in the workplace, the awards have been split into two category areas; Diversity in Tech and Women in Tech.

The Diversity in Tech categories have increased from three to nine categories this year. They include awards for role models in tech, LGBTQ+ inclusion, social mobility, disability inclusion, cultural inclusion, generational inclusion and health and wellness. An overall International Company of the Year and Special Recognition Award have also been added to the broad spectrum of categories.

The Women in Tech categories include a focus on tech leadership, entrepreneurship, digital transformation, mentorship and data science. There will also be a special recognition award for women who have made their mark in innovation, named after pioneering US computer scientist Grace Hopper. Hopper was one of the first programmers to work on the Harvard Mark 1, the world’s first electromechanical computer.
