The DCFemTech Awards recognize and celebrate D.C.-based female leaders in Code, Design, and Data. The event, held on May 7th, recognized 54 women during its 4th annual reception. This year alone, over 600 women were nominated. Nominations were hand selected by a committee of more than 40 judges comprised of engineers, designers, data scientists and executives within each category. Recipients were chosen based on each woman’s impact within their respective organizations and surrounding community, as well as complexity of work. We are thrilled that our very own Jess Szmajda, Optoro’s CTO, was recognized for her accomplishments in coding!
