Heroines in Technology honors local women who balance demanding roles in the fast-paced technology sector with significant commitments to community service:
The 2011 Individual Heroines in Technology Winner: Teresa Bozzelli, Vice President and Managing Director, Sapient.
Teresa’s dedication to her community is both hands-on and strategic. Through her visible leadership roles with organizations like the Capital Area Food Bank – where she works hand-in-hand on site with a team of volunteers –Teresa has inspired many others within her company to become more actively involved. In addition, she is part of the global leadership team behind Sapient’s Gives Back Program, which enables all employees to participate in service hours with a charity of their choice. Teresa’s strategic guidance has also helped groups like The Children’s Inn and No Greater Sacrifice grow. Under Teresa’s direction, the 2011 Children’s Inn Gala set a new bar by embracing emerging technologies, resulting in record level year-over-year increases in donations and attendance.

The March of Dimes is pleased to partner with the Northern Virginia Chapter of the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA NOVA). AFCEA fosters an ethical dialogue between industry, government, and academia on the effective use of technology. The March of Dimes is AFCEA NOVA’s charity of choice because of their mutual belief in the value of science and technology. Science and technology has fueled the innovations and advances in the fight to improve the health of babies, specifically preventing premature birth, birth defects and infant mortality.
