Nancy Benovich Gilby, Ehrenberg Director of Entrepreneurship and Clinical Associate Professor at the University of Michigan’s School of Information, is the first-ever recipient of the Michigan Council of Women in Technology (MCWT) Foundation’s Woman of the Year in Technology Award.
She was honored with the award at MCWT’s annual Orange Carpet Gala on November 5 in Detroit. About 550 IT executives and leaders, suppliers and members of the Michigan IT community were in attendance.
Benovich Gilby, a Michigan alumna (BSE CE ’85, MSE CSE ’87) and entrepreneur with 10 successful high-tech startups to her credit, was nominated by students and local entrepreneurs whom she has coached, mentored, advised and taught.
“Professor Benovich Gilby’s many years of accomplishment as an educator, curriculum developer, and mentor in the traditionally male-dominated high-tech space is remarkable and inspirational,” said Cindy Warner, MCWT president. “Her additional contributions in support of female entrepreneurs here in Michigan made her the obvious choice for this honor.”
