The Mexican entrepreneur won the Most Impactful Initiative Award in the sixth edition of the annual awards held in the United Arab Emirates.


Ana Karen Ramírez, founder and CEO of Epic Queen, was among the 2023 Women in Tech Global Awards winners.

The Mexican EGADE Full-Time MBA alumna, who represented Latin America against six finalists from other regions of the world, was the winner in the Most Impactful Initiative Award category.

This award recognizes initiatives or projects that have notably impacted advancing diversity, equality, and inclusion in the technology sector.

Ramírez received this award for Epic Queen, the social startup through which she empowers and inspires girls and women through content and education in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

“This award recognizes our collective efforts, a reminder that when we empower women in technology, we are not only changing individual lives but also transforming the entire world,” Ramírez posted on social media.

The Women in Tech Global Awards 2023 ceremony took place on November 16 in the city of Sharjah, in the United Arab Emirates.

In this sixth edition, awards were given to the winners in 9 categories, which considered 63 finalists and 3,000 nominees from seven world regions.

At the prize-giving ceremony, it was highlighted that, as founder and CEO of Epic Queen, Ramírez has created a domino effect of transformation, impacting more than 70,000 girls and women and lighting up their passion for STEM areas.

Her dedication to accessibility led to the creation of online boot camps, fostering a sense of belonging in the tech community and inspiring women from different backgrounds to pursue tech careers.

Her hackathons have provided new job opportunities, while her mentoring and skills development programs have equipped girls and women with the tools they need to succeed in the industry.

Ramírez, as an influential digital creator, also hosts a  YouTube channel and a podcast that amplifies women's voices in technology and inspires a new generation of female technologists.
