BOSTON – October 25, 2016 – Towerwall (www.towerwall.com), a data security services provider for small to mid-size businesses, today announced that its founder and CEO Michelle Drolet was voted among six other local business leaders as “2016 Outstanding Women in Business” by the Worcester Business Journal.
“The winners were selected on their career achievements, ability to transcend both male- and female-dominated professions, their contributions to the Central Massachusetts community, and their mentorship of young professionals in the region,” reported the Journal.
Founded in 1993 and based in Framingham, Massachusetts, Towerwall provides organizations such as AMG, Middlesex Savings Bank, Becker College, CannaCare, Allegro MicroSystems and Smith & Wesson, with IT security technology services required for secure business-class networks.
A community activist, Michelle Drolet received a citation from State Senators Karen Spilka for her community service. Twice she has received a Cyber Citizenship award for community support and participation. She has also been involved with the School-to-Career program, an intern and externship program, the Women’s Independent Network, Young Women and Minorities in Science and Technology, a girl’s mentorship program, and the Athena Award.
Michelle is the Co-founder of the Information Security Summit at Mass Bay Community College, now in its fourth year. She publishes a monthly column in Network World called “InfoSec at your Service,” offering strategies to help organizations achieve security integrity. Her articles have also appeared in Cloud Computing, SC Magazine, Wired.com and Worcester Business Journal.
“WBJ strives to use this honor for social change, by showcasing the power of women in business. As the long-time underrepresented gender in the professional world, it remains vital to the causes of gender equality and economic growth (since businesses with better female representation in leadership positions typically outperform those without) that we hold up examples for men and women to follow.”
WBJ will host their Outstanding Women in Business luncheon Nov. 18 at Tuckerman Hall in Worcester.
