David Stegon was a staff reporter for FedScoop and StateScoop from 2011-2014.
General Services Administration Chief Information Officer Casey Coleman will be one of the co-chairs for the 12th Annual Heroines in Technology Awards Gala held this November.
The event, hosted by the March of Dimes and AFCEA NOVA, honors the significant contributions of women from Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Northern Virginia in the technology industry who exemplify leadership in volunteer community service.
Coleman will be joined by Sabret Flocos, a founding partner of FOX Architects.
The 2012 Heroines in Technology finalists will be recognized at the black-tie gala on November 9, at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner. Winners will be announced that evening and will join the more than 67 women recognized over the awards history.
"The awards gala has gained tremendous momentum in its 12 year history and is now recognized as one of area's most rewarding events with supporters from all levels of industry and government," Coleman said.
The proceeds from the evening will support local March of Dimes programs around research, community services, education and advocacy. Since 2001, the event has raised over $1.4 million to support the March of Dimes mission of saving babies.
