 IT world," says Christina Condos, Show Director of PC EXPO.  "These industry
 leaders are playing a crucial role in today's evolving technological and
 scientific development, and we are pleased that PC EXPO will showcase this
 special awards ceremony."
     "Working Woman celebrates and promotes the great strides women are making
 in the business world.  Because the W.E.S.T. Awards specifically recognize

 heart of New York City and with a hub of the IT industry," says Kay Koplovitz,

 perseverance, sacrifice and hard work.  They achieved unique success while
 working their way to executive positions in top companies leading the
 technological industry.
     As a tribute to the roads the W.E.S.T. Awards recipients have blazed for
 the next generation, Working Woman will sponsor a "TechBlazer" Scholarship
 that will be awarded to the top female science student at each award
 recipient's high school alma mater.  By highlighting the winners'
 accomplishments and supporting scholarships, women in the IT world will
 achieve greater professional recognition for their work and innovations.
