Neerja Raman, director of strategic planning for imaging and printing, HP Labs, is one of six 2005 inductees into the Women in Technology International Hall of Fame, an honor considered to be among the most prestigious for women in science and technology worldwide.

Inductees, who are chosen for their innovative work in their respective industries, are honored during an awards ceremony and gala on celebrating the 10th anniversary of Women in Technology International (WITI) the leading professional group for technical women.

“As Hall of Fame inductees, these women are the role models and sources of inspiration for the next generation of women interested in pursuing careers in science and technology,” said Carolyn Leighton, CEO, chairwoman and WITI founder. “All Hall of Fame winners are selected by an independent panel of judges for their contributions in these fields, as well as their commitment to support and mentor other women.”

Leadership role

Raman, who joined HP Labs in 1995, has long been involved with helping professional women advance. In addition to mentoring many individuals, she has been active in numerous programs aimed at raising the profile and advancement opportunities for technical women.

She is on the steering committee for HP Labs' technical women's group, a member of the National Association for Female Executives, serves on the advisory board of Maitri, a women's self-help organization and was formerly on the board of the Indian Business and Professional Women.

Prior to her current position, Raman was director of HP Labs' Imaging Systems Lab, leading a team creating the strategic vision and technology for the company’s innovative imaging and printing products and services. She joined HP Labs in 1995 after 11 years in HP Analytical divisions.

Burke, director of Cardiovascular Systems Research at Abbott Laboratories; Melendy Lovett, president, Texas Instruments Educational & Productivity Solutions and Amparo Moraleda Martinez, IBM general manager, Spain, Portugal, Greece, Israel and Turkey.

“I am honored to be a part of such an outstanding group of women who are avid pursuers of science and technology and who are also passionate about furthering the career of women in advanced technology fields,” said Raman.

In celebration of its 10th year anniversary, this year’s event honors 2005 inductees along with the 55 past recipients. The awards ceremony and gala is part of the December 2005 WITI Silicon Valley Conference in San Jose, CA.
