Women working in IT in the financial industry have an extra few days to be nominated for the Banking Technology Awards 2011.
The award for outstanding contribution by a female in financial technology celebrates the increasing role of female project managers and project managers working in the usually male-dominated industry.
Previous winners include 2010 winner Kritika Shekar, executive director at JP Morgan, and Jane Phillips, technology senior vice president at Bank of America Merrill Lynch in 2008.
“Winning this award has not only given me more visibility both within and outside my firm, but it has also highlighted the importance of the programmes that I work with to recruit, retain and develop women in banking IT,” Shekar said.
Meanwhile Phillips said that winning the award opened new doors for her at BofA.
“These included new roles within the enterprise infrastructure group and a move to the business technology group supporting global rates and currencies,” she said.
The new deadline for entries is Friday 12 August, and nominations need to be written in English and emailed to [email protected]. Entries must be no longer than 1,000 words, and supporting material may be provided.
Any questions can also be directed to Maggie Berry, managing director of womenintechnology.co.uk, which is sponsoring the award, on 020 7422 9214 or [email protected].
