Introducing: the Outstanding PyLady Award!

TL;DR: Know of a PyLady that should be recognized for all their work for Python and the community? Nominate them (or yourself)!

The PyLadies community is made up of many remarkable members and volunteers that make significant contributions to bettering the Python community. The Global Council’s Outstanding PyLady award is meant to elevate diverse Pythonistas doing amazing things, to highlight their achievements, and to thank them for all the work they’ve contributed.

The award is open to women and non-binary PyLadies. Any Python community member may nominate a PyLady at any time (including self-nominations! go on – brag about yourself!). Nominations are accepted via this Google form.

Nominations are accepted year-round, and award winners will be recognized at the nearest upcoming PyCon US. For recognition at PyCon US 2024, nominations must be in by February 4th 2024 AOE.

For more information about the process, please have a look at our documentation.

The Global Council wants to give a huge thank you to Cheuk Ting Ho for proposing the idea of recognizing & rewarding individual PyLadies who give a lot of time and effort to make Python and its community better!
