With a mission to make it easier for everyone to experience the world, at Booking.com, we believe technology should be open and accessible to everyone to enter, progress and flourish, wherever they are and across all levels, ambitions and aspirations.
As part of that, we are delighted to hold the Booking.com Technology Playmaker Awards 2020. Through the awards, we aspire to highlight the amazing things women are doing in the exciting, creative and fast-paced world of technology. We believe that by showcasing industry leaders, innovators and inspirational role models at all levels, more companies will embrace and champion diversity of all kinds, more women and young thinkers will pursue careers in technology, and those already working in the sector will be more supported to thrive and succeed.
