Enterprise Connect is committed to fostering the careers of women in communications/collaboration roles within the enterprise, and to recognizing and celebrating women who demonstrate outstanding qualities of leadership and expertise in technology. To encourage and inspire women’s professional advancement in IT/communications in the enterprise, we have launched our third annual Spotlight Award program.

Award recipients exhibit leadership within enterprise IT, promoting innovative ideas and sound strategies that move their businesses -- and even industries -- forward. Through their achievements, these women advance their profession of IT/communications within the enterprise. Through their actions and leadership, they serve as role models for a new generation of women seeking to excel in the profession of enterprise IT/communications.

Do you know a woman in IT who excels in her profession and serves as a role model to others? If so, we'd love to hear from you! Nominations for the Spotlight Award close Friday, October 20, 2023.

Note that only those working within the enterprise will be considered; those working within vendor companies do not qualify for this award.
