A female leader in the male-dominated field of technology, communication professor Ellen Balka (left) is this year's winner of the YWCA woman of distinction award in the category of workplace innovation.

Balka's research focuses on how information technology affects women and on how women have used information technology in the context of social change. Her research has helped to address sex and gender issues in technological design.

A past president of the Women's Studies Association, she has been a consultant on women's policy issues and is a role model and mentor for young scholars.

Other SFU nominees were Christina Ames, Sheila Davidson, student Bistra Dilkina, Malgorzata Dubiel, and Pat Holborn.
