Women leaders in technology fieldsare often overlooked, but particularlyin the consulting profession—wherethree-quarters of the industry is male,especially in the upper ranks. Andthat number is even greater in technology circles. We recognize the impact you are making every single day.
That’s why we’re launching abrand-new award and recognition event—Consulting’sWomen Leaders in Technology. We highlight our inauguralclass in this issue beginning on Page 8. And what a groupof distinguished winners it is! As with all of our recognitionawards, we’ll be gathering (fingers crossed) later in the yearto recognize these 30 women leaders in technology for theexcellence they’ve shown. Originally scheduled for May,we’ve postponed the event to late August in hopes that bythen we’ll all be able to gather in a ballroom and celebrate.That, of course, still remains to be seen.
A WORD ON COVID- 19
The Women Leaders in Technology event was not the onlyone that needed to be rescheduled. Covid- 19 has forced us tomove The Rising Stars of theProfession dinner to August.
And we are currently looking
to move June’s Top 25 Consultants dinner—our largest of the
year—to the fall, as well. Obviously, the safety of our attend-
ees is paramount in every decision we make. The Covid- 19
disruption is like none we’ve ever seen. It makes life very
difficult for all of us professionally, but particularly consult-
ing, which relies on travel, face-to-face-meetings and hand-
shakes perhaps more than any other industry. I’ve spoken to
a lot of consultants these last few weeks. You are, of course,
serving clients as best you can from home. I’d expect nothing
less. Your real value, however, is yet to come. Once we turn
the corner, clients will need you more than ever to put all the
pieces back together. I’ve covered this profession for some 13
years. There is no doubt you’ll be up for the challenge.
