Nominate A Woman In Tech With Geena Davis & Google
March 10, 2016
- « Legends of Tomorrow 1×08 (CW) Written by Sarah Nicole Jones & Cortney Norris
- Hello, My Name Is Doris – co-written by Laura Terruso »
Strong allies, Google & the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media are teaming up once more.
This time, they’re partnering with the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) to deliver the first Reel Women in Technology (Reel WiT) Award for the best portrayal of a leading woman in technology.
As only 17% of onscreen technology roles feature women or girls, this award aspires to change that by recognizing the best portrayal of a leading woman in technology from a program who serves as a role model for girls and women with computing aspirations while disrupting the stereotypes of female ingenuity in technology fields.
From all the submissions, the selection has been reduced to 5: the cast from the documentaries CodeGirl & She Started It, Loretta from the Disney animated show Miles from Tomorrowland, Carla from HBO’s Silicon Valley and Rey from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The winner will be determined through an online vote ending on March 10, and announced in May at the 2016 NCWIT Summit just outside Red Rock Canyon, Nevada.
