Hospitality Technology (HT) magazine will announce the winners of the third annual Top Women in Restaurant Technology Awards during a special awards program at the 24th annual MURTEC (Multi-Unit Restaurant Technology Conference), being held March 11-13, 2019, at The Paris in Las Vegas.
The program, sponsored by 7SHIFTS, will recognize and honor a diverse array of females in the restaurant technology industry, including restaurant companies and technology providers.
Honors will go to those accomplished women who are reimagining how things are done in restaurants while demonstrating excellence in leadership, inventiveness and skill.
“In order to face new challenges and opportunities, the restaurant industry needs diversity of thought, now more than ever. For that reason we are proud to sponsor the Top Women in Restaurant Technology Awards and recognize all the brilliant women achieving great things. Diversity, empowerment and equality are at the heart of what we value at 7shifts, so we are elated to sponsor this year’s awards and celebrate all the trailblazing women that are leading the restaurant industry forward," said Jordan Boesch, CEO of 7shifts.
The 2019 Honorees will be recognized in three categories including:
Presented to women from any level of an organization, with less than five years of experience in the industry, who have demonstrated leadership and are already making a mark in restaurant technology at an early stage in their careers. From an up-and-coming social media guru at a restaurant brand to a stellar sales rep for IT providers, we want to recognize rising star rockstars!
Presented to women who are forward thinkers and who have executed on tools and strategies to transform the restaurant technology space in a positive manner by creating or deploying emerging technologies that reimagine how things are done while paving the way for future technologies.
The Lifetime Achievement Award: This award is presented in recognition of a lifetime (no less than 15 years) of service and accomplishments in the restaurant technology industry. We seek to honor women who have had an impact on the restaurant technology industry as well as their colleagues and industry peers through enthusiasm, mentorship and commitment, while also showing how technologies can provide new ways of doing things.
Winners will be announced on March 12 at MURTEC. Winners will also be profiled in the April 2019 issue of Hospitality Technology.
