The 2011 Tech Awards Gala

Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2011

The Tech Awards is an international awards program that honors innovators from around the world who are applying technology to benefit humanity. A founding partner of The Tech Awards, Santa Clara University and the Center for Science, Technology and Society play a significant role each year in the celebration honoring the Tech Laureates. The Center sources the nominations and applications, manages the independent judging panels, and connects the Laureates to the human and financial capital here in the Silicon Valley. At this year's gala held on October 20, 15 laureates were honored, and Jeff Skoll, first president of eBay and founder of the Skoll Foundation, was awarded the James C. Morgan Global Humanitarian Award. 

I thank Thane Kreiner, Executive Director of the Center for Science, Technology and Society, the Center staff and others on campus for their participation in the event, coordinating with the Tech Museum and hosting the many university guests at the gala.
