Women Bisnow
May 20, 2008


This issue of Washington Women is presented by
Reznick Group:
"Building Business Value"


By Karin Tanabe for Bisnow on Business


The women making it happen in the world of tech were celebrated at the Women in Technology’s annual Leadership Awards program Thursday night at the McLean Hilton. WIT, a 1,000-member non-profit now in its ninth year, brought in WJLA news anchor Maureen Bunyan to serve as mistress of ceremonies for the crowd of 250 technophiles.  


WIT handed out honors in eight different categories. Here we caught two nominees: Stephanie Knoch of CACI International (for the Rising Star award) and Gail Perkins of Mary Washington Hospital (Government award). Perkins, formerly an ER nurse and now a forensic nurse, was nominated by a detective. She began a program for victims of violence at Mary Washington Hospital in 2000.


Corporate nominee Kathy Walker, Sprint Nextel’s Chief Network Officer, and Raluca Monet from Unisys. Kathy tells us that Sprint will soon be launching their fourth-generation wireless network, Clearwire Venture WiMax. Sounds fancy. 


Annie So of Northrop Grumman; Mary Tabb Howard, Cheryl Roberts, Sue Liblong and Lauren White, all from SiloSmashers


Corporate winner Tami Erwin, President of the DC/Baltimore/VA region for Verizon Wireless, and Carol Moore of SAP.


Government winner Laurie Reyes, Police Officer 3/Project Lifesaver Coordinator with the Montgomery County Dept. of Police, and husband Tarik. A police officer for 11 years, Laurie coordinates a program that uses radio frequency and traceable bracelets to track individuals with a propensity to wander, such as Alzheimer’s sufferers.


Heidi Gerding, CEO of HeiTech Services; Toni Townes–Whitley, Unisys; and Trudy McCrea, Achieve-It. “The sole mission of WIT is to support, mentor and promote the success of women and girls in technology,” says Trudy.


Kevin Reichart with wife and nominee Erin Reichart, both from Northrop Grumman. Erin, whose husband helped bring her to the company, says her big workplace perks are “jeans on Fridays and the best boss in the world.” Flattery will get you everywhere, Erin.
