Tell Me About Les Margaret Awards:

JFD have officially opened submissions for this year’s Margaret Awards, which give women and young girls who are changing the world with tech the chance to showcase their ideas and win prizes in six categories

The French organisation brings together economic actors, media, public and private organisations to support and empower women in the STEM field, and founded the awards during 2013. 

The celebration has since paid tribute to Margaret Hamilton, scientist and software engineer who led the development of software for NASA’s Apollo space program which saw humankind first walk on the moon. 

“It’s time to launch our next tech champions into orbit. As we do every year with our partners, we will support the winners to accelerate their growth and provide them with media exposure valued at €1 million” – Delphine Remy-Boutang, CEO the Bureau & JFD, President GEN France.
