LONDON | MUMBAI, OCTOBER 23, 2018: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organization, announced that CRN Magazine has presented its Women in Channel “Woman of the Year” Award to Seeta Hariharan, General Manager and Group Head, TCS Digital Software & Solutions Group (DS&S).
The inaugural Women in Channel Awards recognize the achievements of entrepreneurs, leaders and exceptional employees who act as role models for young women considering careers in the IT industry.
Accepting the award, Seeta Hariharan, said, “I want to thank CRN for recognizing the work we have done in building an independent software business that sells through our partners. As a kid growing up in the southern part of India, I was taught that if I truly believed in myself I would have the confidence to live my dreams. For women in technology careers, self-confidence is like rocket fuel; it can propel us to extraordinary heights. And when we combine that with digital technology, we have the potential to make this world a better place and aligned with our values.”
