Tech in Motion announces top local companies for diversity in tech and opens voting to the public.
San Francisco (September 16, 2019) – Tech in Motion, a tech community with over 110,000 members, has named Bluedot as a finalist for this year’s Timmy Award – Best Tech Workplace for Diversity category. Winners will be announced at a live ceremony this October. Voting is open to the public here until September 27th, while the Judge’s Choice recipient will be chosen by a panel of expert judges.
The selection criteria for the Best Tech Workplace for Diversity is based on the following:
- Implementation of diverse hiring and employment practices
- Collaboration and inclusive thinking to produce an innovative product
- Provision of tools and resources to explore and celebrate differences
“We’re excited to have not one, but two awards recognizing diverse thinking and collaboration this year. Getting the opportunity to celebrate the inclusion, innovation, and growth in the community through the Timmy Awards is beyond exciting,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Motion Recruitment, creator of Tech in Motion. “Companies have realized diversity is a necessary ingredient for company creativity and success, and we’re looking forward to recognizing that.”
“We recognize the importance of diversity as a unique strength to not only our business but as part of our DNA and company culture. In the last year and a half, the number of women on the Bluedot team has tripled. In addition, we’re proud that roughly half of our board is women. Diversity gives us perspective, challenges our thinking and ultimately, helps us grow as a team,” says Emil Davityan, Co-Founder and CEO of Bluedot.

These places and cultures uniquely shaped each person’s background and perspective, bringing a wealth of diversity and creativity to the company.
