Nita Voralia, a Principal Consultant within Computacenter‘s UK Consultancy division, has been nominated for an award at this year’s CRN Women In Channel Awards in the Unsung Hero Category. Being the only female consultant within the Workplace Collaboration Presales and Architecture Team, she is a huge advocate for women within the sector: “Women in IT should be celebrated,” she says. “I feel that women too have a huge contribution to make.”
In her current role, she both designs and delivers solutions for our based on their individual business requirements. She also takes on presales activities, assisting our solution specialists with putting together costings and proposals for new opportunities. Amazingly, she’s been with Computacenter for over 25 years.
“The roles I have been in during my time here have been both technically focused and challenging, and the solutions and feedback I have received over the years both from customers and colleagues alike has definitely contributed to my CRN Women In Channel Award nomination.”
This isn’t her first award recognition though, having received a silver award for an assignment that was delivered outside of the UK and more recently, earning a nomination for the Computacenter High Performance achievement award.
“I don’t seek the limelight for any work that I do, I just feel that everything should be delivered to the best of my capability; whether that is for a customer or assisting a colleague.” I strongly feel that the work should always be of a high standard.
When she found out about her nomination for the CRN Women In Channel Awards 2020, she was very surprised, and never expected to be nominated! “I feel I’m representing the UK Consultancy practice. I am deeply humbled, honoured and immensely proud to have been nominated.”
Outside of work, Nita helps look after a family member who has Asperger’s syndrome; something that has it’s challenging moments for her. This hasn’t stopped her though, and she still puts her heart and soul into her work. “It helps me overcome a lot of things. In fact, it’s made me more resilient than ever!”
