In the last three weeks, five Sun women have received honors for their work in technology and business. Susan Landau, distinguished engineer, has been named the Anita Borg Institute 2008 Women of Vision Award winner in the Social Impact category.
The YWCA of Silicon Valley has awarded four Sun employees a 2008 Tribute to Women (TWIN) award: Cheryl Cook, vice president of sales; Beverly Glasser, senior director of IT; Noreen Krall, vice president and chief intellectual property officer; and Karen Tegan Padir, vice president, software infrastructure.
The Women of Vision Awards, hosted by the Anita Borg Institute Board of Trustees, honored women making significant contributions to technology. One winner was selected in each category: Innovation, Leadership, and Social Impact. Nominees were submitted by high-tech companies, universities, private industry, and the public. Each year YWCA of Silicon Valley honors the top women at leading organizations that have had a substantial impact on the organization relative to its growth, profitability, and innovation. Winners have outstanding leadership qualities and are successful role models for other women transitioning into executive positions.
Congratulations to all!
