Since its launch three years ago, the core philosophy behind The BlackBerry® Women and Technology Awards remains unchanged. Blackberry wants others to be as passionate about technology as they are.
The BlackBerry Women and Technology Awards will honour the achievements of women, both within and beyond the IT sector. Blackberry believes there are many leaders in the technology sector today that inspire a new generation of women who may be considering a career in technology.
In this year edition, Dr. Celia de Anca formed part of the judging panel for the Blackberry Woman and Technology Awards held on March 11 in London. De Anca is the only non-UK member of the panel to date. Dr. Celia de Anca is Director of the Centre for Diversity at IE Business School in Madrid and is a member of the school’s Executive Board. A PhD graduate from Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Celia co-authored Managing Diversity in the Global Organization published by Macmillian in 2007. Celia is also an external advisor to Merrill Lynch’s Diversity & Inclusion Council, a member of Morgan Stanley’s Ethics Fund Committee and the International Scientific Committee of the University Euromed in Marseille.
