2022 Moxie Women in Tech

About

The Moxie Awards

 

Built In has been synonymous with the Moxie Awards for many years, but in 2021 the program got a refresh. Instead of highlighting the best of the best in Chicago tech, the awards program now honors women in tech across the nation. 

 

“Moxie” is defined as a combination of courage, determination, energy, and know-how. When it comes to recognizing women in tech, we know that these are the qualities that drive them — and the qualities worth celebrating. This awards program proudly honors the women who are likely to ascend to the pinnacle of their careers in tech — and who are already on their way. 

 

The Moxie Awards embrace nominations of any person who identifies as a woman, whether through gender identity, gender expression or sex. We look forward to your nominations of women you believe exemplify what it means to embody “Moxie” for our 2022 awards program.

Celebrate Women in Tech

Meet The 2022 Moxie Award Winners .

Built In’s Moxie Awards honor rising women in tech for their outsized contributions — skills, leadership, accomplishments — to their places of work, communities and the industry as a whole. 

 

Rather than honoring C-suite or VP-level leaders, the 2022 Moxie Awards celebrate women across the U.S. who are likely to ascend to the pinnacle of their careers in tech — and who are already on their way. This may include people with titles like director, individual contributor, manager — or any role with room to rise. 

 

“Moxie” is defined as a combination of courage, determination, energy, and know-how. When it comes to recognizing women in tech, we know that these are the qualities that drive them — and the qualities worth celebrating.

 

The Moxie Awards embrace nominations of any person who identifies as a woman, whether through gender identity, gender expression or sex. We look forward to your nominations of women you believe exemplify what it means to embody “Moxie.
