The 2017 Inclusion for Impact Awards finalists have been selected amid a flurry of nominations coming in the final days. Out of the nearly 100 entries submitted for review, the selection committee identified the top women business executives and industry leaders across all listed categories. Nominations were received from influential members of the technology and venture capital communities who view the candidates as exceptional in their profession, as well as in their inclusion and diversity endeavors. These accomplished women and men have made a difference in 2017 and who will continue to make a difference in bringing about positive diversity changes in tech.

Finalists were vetted by members of Crunchbase and PagerDuty. Data from Crunchbase was also used to aid in the selection process.
