Booking.com unveils Women in Technology Scholarships

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

women technologyBooking.com, one of the world’s largest travel e-commerce companies and digital technology leader, introduced Booking.com Women in Technology Scholarships, a new, two-year initiative designed to support women seeking careers in technology.

Working in conjunction with the University of Oxford in the UK, and the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, these scholarships will be granted to women looking to further their education and advancement in the technology sector. The grants will equal over $585K across both university partnerships.

Recognizing an under-representation of women in under-graduate and advanced STEM-related areas of study, both university initiatives seek to create more opportunities for talented women to continue further education and post-graduate courses in these areas, and prepare them for future careers in the technology industry.

Commenting on the initiative, Gillian Tans, Chief Executive Officer of Booking.com said, “As a company powered by technology and digital innovation, Booking.com believes strongly in ensuring equal access and opportunity for all within the technology sector. Recognizing that female participation in technology is lower than it should be, we are committed to bolstering female tech talent, eliminating obstacles and challenges they face, and fostering diversity."
