The Connecticut Technology Council (CTC)'s Women of Innovation planning committee today announced the finalists for the sixth annual Women of Innovation awards program. This program recognizes women – those in the workforce and students – across Connecticut who are innovators, role models and leaders in their technology professions or fields of study.
The winner in each of the eight awards categories will be announced during the 2010 Women of Innovation Awards Dinner at the Aqua Turf Club in Southington on January 20.
“This year's 2010 finalists represent another outstanding class of women innovators and leaders,” said Beth Alquist, chair of the planning committee for the Women of Innovation awards program. “They are outstanding professionals who serve as role models to their peers and women interested in pursuing challenging technology careers. These women also bring exceptional quantitative and management skills to their technical and science professions.”
This year’s list of 59 finalists includes researchers, educators, managers and entrepreneurs/business owners who work in biotech, pharmaceuticals, software, computer hardware, nanotech, advanced materials, medical devices and IT.
High school, undergraduate and graduate students who have demonstrated extraordinary and unique achievements in their technology studies are also among the finalists. The winner in the Youth Innovation and Leadership category will receive a scholarship from the Connecticut Technology Council.
