DANOBATGROUP JOINS THE SPONSORSHIP OF THE ADA BYRON AWARDS FOR TECHNOLOGIST WOMEN

03 February, 2020

The Danobatgroup business group has joined the sponsorship of the Ada Byron awards to the Female Technologist, awarded annually by the University of Deusto, with the aim of reinforcing its commitment to the development of professional talent, the promotion of female scientific and technological vocations and equal opportunities between men and women.

In addition to its support as a sponsor, the group will have a notable participation in the organization of the awards. The director of Innovation of Danobatgroup, Nerea Aranguren, will be part of the jury and will be present at the presentation of this year's edition, which will take place on Friday January 31st, in the framework of Forotech Engineering and Technology Week 2020.

The meeting, which will be held on the San Sebastian campus of the University of Deusto will have the robotics expert Concepción Alicia Monje, winner of last year's edition, in attendance. During the event Aranguren will offer a brief presentation in which she will insist on the value and relevance of recognizing the historical contribution of women to science and technology.

“Danobatgroup bets unequivocally on equality. Our support for this initiative seeks to give visibility to the professional careers of technologists who have made an outstanding contribution to science and are a reference and a source of inspiration for the professionals of the future,” says Concepción Alicia Monje.

In Aranguren's opinion, "the awards are consolidating year after year" as evidenced by the launch of a Mexican edition in 2019, in addition to the organization of a youth category in which "the level of candidates is spectacular."

The Ada Byron awards were awarded for the first time in 2014 and since its creation they have recognized the work of leading scientists such as María Ángeles Martín, a professor in the Department of Electronic Engineering at the University of Seville; Montserrat Meya, a linguist specialized in computer language, or Regina Llopis, a doctor of mathematics applied to artificial intelligence at the University of California Berkeley (USA).

Danobatgroup's support for these awards is part of its commitment with training talent through collaborating with the educational community and participating in projects aimed at promoting and recognizing the contribution of women in research and innovation.

The group has a strategic talent management model, which focuses on the empowerment of its professionals.

Currently, the industrial sector faces challenges such as digitalization and automation of productive environments, a new model that will require the incorporation of multidisciplinary professionals in the STEM field (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), thus thee importance of launching initiatives that aim to promote the passion for science.
