One IT Colleagues,

Today is the deadline to submit your nomination for the UC-wide Women in Technology (WIT) Committee’s annual UC Women Who Rock IT blog article! Simply fill out this nomination form by 5 p.m. PST today.

The article will be published in the UC IT Blog in March, during Women’s History Month, and will highlight the contributions of women in tech across the UC system. You can nominate yourself, a female-identifying colleague, or a female-identifying team member who made a significant contribution (large or small) from last March to the present. These contributions should highlight work that is tech-oriented (in any field, from ed tech to software development to security and more) or work that reflects the mission and values of UC WIT

In the nomination form, provide a short description (100 words) of the honorees’ achievements or contributions. When writing the description consider answering one or more of the following questions: What makes their achievement amazing? What was the impact of their achievement? How difficult was their challenge? How urgent was the issue they addressed? Did they handle a complex organizational change? Did they create a more inclusive environment? Did they advance the professional goals and aspirations of UC women in technology? Need inspiration? Read past UC Women Rock IT articles

We, your local WIT committee are responsible for submitting a single entry and getting permission from the honoree to be included. A subcommittee of UC WIT will review and edit the final entries for publication in the UC IT Blog. All UC Berkeley nominees will be notified and published in a news article on the Technology website

Warm regards,

Your UC Berkeley Women in Technology Committee Representatives:

  • Rita Rosenthal, Director of Communications, Berkeley IT | Strategy & Partnerships

  • Charron Andrus, Associate Chief Information Security Officer | Information Security Office

  • Jeané Blunt, Communications Specialist, Berkeley IT | Strategy & Partnerships
