Congratulations to Martina Grom on receiving the Microsoft Power Women in Tech Award

In a world where gender diversity and equality (fortunately) are becoming more important, we are very proud that our CEO Martina Grom was honored with the Microsoft Power Women in Tech Award for Austria! Congratulations!

The Microsoft Power Women in Tech Awards was created to recognize and support remarkable women in the Microsoft Partner Network in Western Europe who are proven champions of promoting diversity and inclusion. The objective of the award is to enhance the visibility of these remarkable leaders and serve as a source of inspiration for women across all stages of their careers in the field. By shining a spotlight on their achievements, the award seeks to encourage and motivate women, showcasing possibilities and potential for success in their chosen domains. It aims to foster a supportive environment where women feel empowered to pursue their passions and break through any barriers they may encounter, ultimately driving greater gender diversity and representation in the industry.

Martina Grom is the CEO of atwork and an active member in the Microsoft IT-community. Martina's exceptional achievements and commitment to empowering women in technology have earned her the prestigious Women in Power Award in Austria.

Congrats, Martina! This is great!
