Sponsored by Businesswire

Growth Acceleration Partners (GAP), a continuous software delivery partner, today announced it was honored at the 16th Annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business. Created in 2002, the Stevie Awards program is one of the world’s premier business awards, honoring the achievements and positive contributions of organizations and working professionals worldwide.

GAP was named a Gold Stevie Award winner in the Management Team of the Year category, recognizing women-owned or -led companies. The company was also named a Silver Stevie Award winner in the Achievement in Developing and Promoting Women category, which recognizes a company’s mission in creating opportunities for women to achieve executive positions.

“We are incredibly honored to be recognized for our active commitment to supporting and developing women in our organization and for the great work that the GAP management team has done to build an inclusive environment,” said Joyce Durst, CEO and co-founder of GAP. “Our clients and end users are multi-generational and multinational, so it is critical for us to build a workforce that represents this diversity. We have consistently seen that diverse and inclusive teams yield better results.”

Durst’s passion for building diverse teams and investing in talent from different cultural backgrounds and generations earned GAP its industry-leading reputation for the development of women in leadership positions. Women make up only 28 percent of the science and engineering workforce (National Science Board, Science and Engineering Indicators, 2018). The company has a longstanding commitment to addressing this disparity, creating opportunities for women in STEM and fostering diversity of culture, thought and perspectives.

Stevie Award winners were announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 15. A complete list can be found here.
