Inaugural Jill R. Mervin Business Leadership Award Celebrates Professional Women Inspiring Women’s Success

Tracy Monday, Former COO of Cloud Gateway, Named as First Honoree

WAYNE, Pa., August 30, 2022 – On the heels of Women’s Equality Day, the Jill R. Mervin Business Leadership Award has been established to honor professional women who lift other women in the global workforce. Tracy Monday, former COO of Cloud Gateway, will be the first recipient of the award, which celebrates female leaders who inspire and cultivate excellence, opportunity, and ambition for women coming up in their careers.

Created by Katrin Hillner, President and CEO of PCN (PC Network Inc), in honor of her first mentor, the award recognizes women who embody Mervin’s generous spirit as a guide and advocate for other women to reach their truest potential.

“We all stand on the shoulders of the shining examples that came before us,” said Hillner. “When I met Tracy Monday, I recognized this profound quality immediately. Both Mervin and Monday embody the spirit and actions that help other women thrive. Tracy’s impressive global career, commitment to giving back, and powerful positive energy exemplify the attributes I am looking to celebrate and amplify with this distinction.”

The Jill R. Mervin Business Leadership Award recognizes global women executives who inspire and cultivate excellence, opportunity, and ambition in women in the workforce.  Future honorees, like Monday, will be women whose leadership example make an extraordinary impact on the organizations they support, the customers they serve, and the teams of individuals they lead.  

Tracy Monday said, ‘Working in the UK hot spot of entrepreneurs and tech innovators has never been more fun and receiving this award is the icing on the cake. I want to inspire women to see this industry as the best career choice. The industry is changing, and we need to continue to work hard to drive total equality and inclusion. We live in an ‘on-demand’ society. Technology plays an integral part in every aspect of our lives, but the workforce is not yet representative. I, like many women, want to see a more diverse workforce – diversity of culture and of thought.”

To be conferred annually, a $1,000 donation will be made in the name of Jill R. Mervin Business Leadership Award honorees to a non-profit of the recipient’s choice.  Monday has selected TeenTech an award-winning charity, founded in 2008 by Maggie Philbin and Chris Dodson, to receive the donation.

TeenTech helps young people understand the opportunities in the science, technology. and engineering (STEM) industries, regardless of gender and social background. 

“One of my most rewarding working days was spent with TeenTech in Leicester supporting hundreds of school children at a tech exhibition just before lockdown. Positive encouragement can make such a difference to how young people imagine their futures.” said Monday.
