Consulting Magazine | The 2022 Women Leaders in Technology: The Honorees

Originally appeared in the article, “The 2022 Women Leaders in Technology: The Honorees” by Michael Webb in Consulting Magazine.

Consulting magazine is honored to announce the honorees for the 2022 Women Leaders in Technology award.

Now in its third year, these awards acknowledge those contributions made by women in the consulting profession in the category of technology. Highlighting the impact women have in the industry has been a long-standing tradition for Consulting, marked by the launch of the Women Leaders in Consulting awards in 2007.

Increasingly, women play a substantial role in the consulting world, especially with the increased number of engagements falling under the category of technology. In sectors ranging from digital disruption or transformation, IoT, cloud, cybersecurity, or broad-based IT and implantation work, tech-focused advisory work is in extremely high demand. And women are leading the charge.

One cannot look at our profession and not acknowledge the fact that the overwhelming majority of these advisory roles are filled by men— with a disproportionate number in the ranks of leadership. In an industry that is three-quarters male, women leaders are often overlooked. With that in mind, we raise these women up as examples and recognize the accomplishments and success of Consulting’s Leading Women in Technology 2022.

These 46 honorees are selected in seven distinct categories: Excellence in Client Services, Future Leaders, Diversity Champion, Excellence in Innovation, Mentor of the Year, Lifetime Achievement and Excellence in Leadership.
