Scotts Valley, CA (PRWEB) January 31, 2007
Paula Phelan, CEO of Nadel Phelan, Inc. (NPI PR) and specialist in media communications for technology firms, was named a Finalist in the Communications Campaign category of the 3rd Annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business. This nomination resulted from ongoing efforts to raise awareness among women and minorities about career opportunities in networking and IT through the Women in Technology Communications Campaign.
Honoring women entrepreneurs, executives and their companies worldwide, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business recognize excellence in 44 categories such as best entrepreneur, best product introduced by a woman and best communications campaign. Winners will be announced March 2 at a prestigious New York gala event.
The Women in Technology Campaign addresses the threat of a massive workforce deficit for IT professionals, expected to climax in 2012. According to industry analysts, there is also an alarming gap between the percentages of men versus women in the IT profession. Although women make up half of the country's population, they compromise only 20 percent of the IT workforce in the United States. The campaign's goal is to increase female participation in computer science as well as other related IT degree programs and careers.
"Many people today still genderize certain professions and computer science is, unfortunately, one of them," said Paula Phelan, CEO of NPI PR. "Many women don't realize that a career in technology will open doors to their professional field of choice. Every industry uses technology on a day-to-day basis, and the opportunities are truly endless."
