Sherry Hwang Named 2020 Leadership Award Winner by Women in Technology

Women in Technology (WIT) has named Pyramid Systems’ President and Co-Founder Sherry Hwang a 2020 Leadership Awards Small Business/Entrepreneur winner. Sherry was one of five finalists nominated in the category. Annually, the WIT Leadership Awards recognize and honor female leaders whose achievements, mentorship, and contributions to the community align with the WIT mission of advancing women in technology, from the classroom to the boardroom, in the DC Metro Area.

“Though this year’s leadership awards looked a bit different than [in]years past,” said WIT President Carrie Drake, “our goal remained the same: to celebrate powerful female leaders who have made a tremendous impact on our local community.” Though we couldn’t celebrate this year’s winners in person, we continue to be inspired by their stories and steadfast commitment to innovation and the advancement of women in STEM.”

“I’m so honored to have been named the 2020 Small Business/Entrepreneur Award winner!” Sherry Hwang said. “I have focused my entire career on giving back through mentoring, setting up scholarships, and volunteering my time. It is so important to help future leaders grow not only within your organization but also in your industry.”

Women in Technology announced the winners at a virtual event on Thursday, October 29, 2020. For the full list of winners, visit the Women in Technology website.
