ICF International, Inc., a leading provider of professional services and technology-based solutions to government and commercial clients, has been awarded the Corporate Leadership Award from Women in Technology (WIT), the premier organization contributing to the success of professional women in the Washington, D.C.-area technology community.
In winning the award, ICF was recognized as a public company that makes a difference in gender diversity and leads the way in appointing women to its board of directors. Three of ICF’s eight board members are women, a proportion that is well above the national average for public companies.
“ICF is focused on attracting and retaining the very best talent available in the market regardless of gender,” said Ellen Glover, executive vice president for ICF International, in accepting the award. “Women comprise a significant percentage of our board of directors as well as our executive leadership. Having an inclusive culture and a diverse staff allows us to deliver comprehensive and effective professional services to our clients and gives us a significant advantage over our competitors.”
“Research shows a positive correlation between women serving on corporate boards and the financial performance of the corporations. With that in mind, ICF is leading the way in appointing qualified women to join its ranks,” said Julie Bloecher, chair of WIT’s The Leadership Foundry, which concentrates on identifying and training women for corporate board opportunities.
WIT presented its annual Corporate Leadership Award to ICF on May 19 at the 17th Annual WIT Leadership Awards event held in Reston, Va.
