About the event

WHERE: QEII Centre London, UK
WHEN: Thursday 17th March 2022

The BTA Awards was set-up to celebrate and acknowledge Black role models and innovators within the UK’s tech sector and to help illuminate the pathways to greater representation of the Black community within the industry.

Despite a number of initiatives to increase diversity in the tech sector there is still a notable lack of representation. The BTA looks to provide a platform that champions Black leaders within  one of the most thriving industries.


The UK’s technology sector is growing almost three times faster than the rest of the economy and with tech firms creating an ever increasing number of highly-skilled and highly-paid jobs, opportunities are only set to increase. By championing Black achievement within technology, the BTA Awards aim to inspire and connect whilst helping to map out a more diverse, inclusive and therefore innovative landscape.


Nominations close on Feb 10th 2022

Nominations are now open for a total of thirteen categories. The BTA Awards highlights achievements from all those working within the tech sector, from rising stars to experienced innovators and progressive corporations. Take a look at the award categories below.
