These include innovation and idea management programs, patent program, technical recognition events and employee engagement initiatives. She also manages the company’s publishing programs, including CA Press.

In addition to innovation, Connie is responsible for establishing CA Technologies presence and image with colleges and universities around the world through strong, mutually supportive partnerships between CA Technologies and the academic community, including the CA Academic Initiative.

Connie is also the elected President of the CA Technologies Council for Technical Excellence, leading an organization of the company’s top 100 technical leaders to drive innovation, collaboration and change. In 2010, she established the Women@CA Network, an employee network group focused on gender diversity.

“I am an advocate for all forms of diversity, and that shows up in my interactions with people and the programs I run. From ensuring better gender, business unit and global representation within the Council for Technical Excellence (CTE); to promoting more women speakers in Tech Talks; to mentoring introverts to help them navigate sticky situations. It’s always something I notice—and also point out.”
