NEW YORK,/PRNewswire/ — Globant (NYSE: GLOB), a digitally native company focused on reinventing businesses through innovative technology solutions, today announced the launch of its 5th edition of Women That Build Awards, the annual recognition program aimed to provide global visibility and networking opportunities for talented women to thrive in their professional careers.

The tech industry, renowned for its innovation, faces a gender representation challenge with only 28% of its workforce being female. As a leading IT company, Globant is focusing the Awards’ 5th edition on spotlighting visionary women who embrace technology and innovation, inspiring other women to pursue tech careers and make positive impacts in both the industry and the world.

This edition, supported by global partners such as AWS, CoachHub, NYSE, and Udemy, launched on International Women’s Day. Images of Jennifer Samaniego and Jaloree Lantigua, global winners of the 4th edition of the WTB Awards, were featured on the NYSE Billboard at Times Square in New York City to continue showcasing women who are making a positive impact in the industry.

“This fifth edition of the Awards not only condenses a journey initiated in 2020 filled with inspiring narratives, tangible opportunities, and concrete outcomes, but also, nourished by the experience of four previous editions, it adapts and focuses on its emerging trends and both the static and evolving needs,” said Patricia Pomies, Chief Operating Officer at Globant. “From women with outstanding skills in leadership and the latest technologies to visionary and purpose-driven entrepreneurs, we seek narratives that are inspired by the ambition to create a fair and representative sector for all who are part of it.”

The Women That Build Awards 2024 categories are:

Tech Executive: Inspiring C-level Executives, VPs, Directors, and Board Members in large organizations with outstanding skills in leadership and the latest technologies, including AI.
Tech Entrepreneur: Visionary and purpose-driven entrepreneurs seeking to reinvent businesses through the lens of AI and the latest technologies.
Tech Leader: Powerful and talented women in middle management roles with outstanding potential and ability to adopt and apply the latest technologies, including AI.
“We aim to honor the countless women who have blazed trails in technology, shaping a brighter future for us all,” said Wanda Weigert, Chief Brand Officer at Globant. “These Awards serve as a vital step towards rectifying the underrepresentation of women in the pivotal roles of tomorrow’s workforce. They also serve as a platform for amplifying diverse perspectives, empowering women to lead and foster entrepreneurship within the sector.”

The previous four editions accumulated over 310,000 votes, featured 6,000 candidates and involved women from over 50 countries. Additionally, they garnered support from more than 150 supporting organizations and engaged over 240 international judges.
