With nearly 1000 members in the Washington, D.C.-area, WIT strives to meet its vision of being the premier organization empowering women to be architects of change in the technology industry.

The “Technical Leadership” category honors women providing great leadership and exemplary technical abilities in a technology leadership role. At Appian, Ms. Dubrovsky leads a team whose role is to understand customer business needs, translate those needs into implementable requirements, and work with software developers to build the best Business Process Management platform in the market.
