The Computerworld Honors Program
Honoring Those Who Use Information Technology to Benefit Society
Home > Acknowledgements > Chairmen's Committee


The Program's Chairmen's Committee is an invitation-only coalition of 100 Chairmen and Chief Executive Officers of leading information technology companies around the world. Members are selected on the basis of their personal and professional achievements in the IT realm, and are particularly well qualified to track the rapid changes that their technology is fostering in society today. Their perspectives and their companies' involvement in the global information technology revolution ensure that the Program's Global Archives contain stories of achievements and positive impact on society that best exemplify the "new heroes" of the information age.

Each year the Chairmen's Committee identifies a new slate of organizations whose use of IT merits recognition and documentation. Nominees are then invited to submit Case Studies, a written and digital record of their innovations. Once reviewed and accepted, the Laureate Case Studies are inducted into the Computerworld Honors Programís Archives On-Line, and also the Programís Global Archives, which are housed in the permanent collections of over 350 archives, universities, libraries and research institutions around the world.

The Computerworld Honors Program is indebted to the hard work and commitment of the 2010 Chairmen's Committee.
