Listen Technologies joins Utah businesses in support of the Women Tech Council’s commitment in nurturing students’ interest in science and technology careers.

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA—Listen Technologies is proud to announce its participation in the Education Sponsorship program for the upcoming Women Tech Awards. The Women Tech Awards, directed by the Women Tech Council (WTC), recognizes women who are leading technology companies, promoting innovation in their industry, and are making contributions to the community.

Over the past six years, the WTC has had the opportunity to honor 90 amazing women working in various technology fields and 15 university students. They’ve also sponsored over 100 high school students for the awards in order to inspire the next generation of young women.

Current Education sponsors include; Patent Law Works LLP, Holland & Hart LLP, Nelson Laboratories, Listen Technologies, Symantec, and Truenorthlogic.

When asked why it was important to be an Education Sponsor for the Women Tech Awards, Schaeffer stated, “I wanted to make it easier for young women to attend the Women Tech awards. I’m a firm believer that when these young women see and interact with the many women who’ve been nominated for awards, as well as, have the opportunity to network with other women in technical fields, they’ll see a career path for themselves in technology. The technology field needs and wants more talented, smart, young women and there’s no better way to get them involved than getting them to attend WTC events.”

Halle Veysey, a student at Lone Peak High School noted, “This year I plan to start my own club at Lone Peak High School to interest female students in science and technology. I want to spread the word to other teens that a career in technology can be fun and exciting.”

The Sixth Annual Women Tech Awards will honor 17 women in the technology field. The Women Tech Council is looking to continue its success of hosting over 125 STEM students at the awards. The awards will be announced at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah on September 12, 2013 at a luncheon.
