Cathrin Stöver was one of four finalists to be announced in the International Leader of the Year category in the prestigious 2015 FDM everywoman in Technology Awards.
As Chief International Relations and Communications Officer for GEANT Ltd, Cathrin was nominated for her work supporting the global connectivity of GÉANT. Through this she is both supporting women and inspiring them – by delivering digital opportunities to a worldwide audience.
“Before you light a fibre, or set down a single line of code, you have to network people. This is what Cathrin does,” says Ann Harding, GÉANT Activity Leader.
The award calls for people who can demonstrate, not only that their work is supporting women, but who can also act as powerful role models. The GÉANT project offers an excellent platform to promote women in technology. Cathrin’s role very tangibly shows the value a career in IT can deliver, to women, and to society as a whole, and this is a key driver in inspiring women into the sector. Find out more here
