Isos Technology, a leading provider of Atlassian and IT consulting services, today announced that Becky Papp, a Project Manager at the Company, was named as a finalist for the AZ Top Tech Exec Awards last Thursday night.

ChickTech's overall mission is to engage girls and women of all ages in the technology industry.
At the awards ceremony, The Phoenix Business Journal honored the Valley’s technology community in categories such as Top CEO, Top Tech Advocate, Rising Star, and more. The designated individuals were nominated by their peers and clients, and were then selected by an panel of independent judges from the business and IT field.

Papp founded the Phoenix chapter of ChickTech in December 2017, and currently serves as Chapter Leader. She and several of her co-workers from Isos Technology work side-by-side to fulfill ChickTech's mission of providing educational and career support to young girls and women. The Phoenix chapter strives to provide girls in K-12, in particular, with hands-on experience and opportunities in technology and STEM that they would not otherwise have.
"I am thrilled about the recognition my award nomination has brought to ChickTech," said Papp. "Our mission of encouraging girls to explore technology--and providing the tools and support for women to stay in technology--is key to innovation in our field, as well as our city. The ChickTech volunteers, and the organizations who provide sponsorship, are dedicated to giving every young woman the chance to embrace technology. It is incredibly exciting to be part of this very important movement in Phoenix."
