About InspiringFifty

Increasing diversity in tech by recognising female role models and making them more visible

The InspiringFifty programme, run by EQL:HER was established to spotlight the incredible women excelling in tech careers, first in the Netherlands and increasingly around the world.

 In 2018, EQL:HER and InspiringFifty teamed up to launch the first UK list in recognition of the wealth of tech talent here.

In June 2022, during the London Tech Week festival, our first Europe-wide awards celebrating the top 50 women in tech across Europe will take place in London.

Nominations now open: Nominate the Top Women in European Tech for the InspiringFifty Europe 2022 Award

For the first time, the InspiringFifty Europe 2022 Award will recognise the top fifty women excelling in tech careers across Europe. 

Do you or someone you know deserve to be recognised for the work you do and for championing women in tech? Then put the spotlight on incredible stories, but hurry, as nominations close on 15 February. 

Winners will be announced during an exclusive ceremony in London in June 2022, as part of the London Tech Week festival.
