The annual Leading Lights awards dinner/party, held this year at the Brazos Hall in Austin, Texas, is always great fun and, of course, an exciting evening as the winners are announced and trophies handed out.

We had 25 categories this year, including two Women in Comms awards, so there were plenty of winners in celebratory mood. (See Leading Lights 2017: The Winners and Congratulations to WiC's Newest Leading Lights.)

The awards dinner was held on the eve of the Big Communications Event (BCE): You can find out what happened at the show at our BCE Show News page.

To see who picked up the 2017 trophies, start this slideshow by clicking on the picture below.

Re: Congrats to all
Yes, it's always great to see winners among not only the big names but the ones you don't always see in the news and press releases quite so often despite the work they've done and progress added to the industry.

Congrats to all
These are all great shots! I'm seeing a lot of well-known providers among these winners. It's nice to see the little guys too.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
