Marci McCarthy: A Successful Woman in Tech Paying It Forward

Mar 13, 2017

is the fifth annual Marci McCarthy Day, which makes now a perfect time to salute Marci for her role as a TechBridge board member and as a community ambassador with a passion for paying it forward.

In , Marci received a congressional citation from Georgia Representative Hank Johnson for her work in fostering greater professionalism in the IT security industry and enhancing the efforts of the private and public sectors to protect cyberspace. For her efforts, the 4th Congressional District of Georgia declared Marci McCarthy Day.

Getting to Know Marci

We sat down with Marci to learn more about her story:

When Marci first came to Atlanta, she knew only a few people from Babson College. After getting settled into her new hometown, she met some amazing women from Women in Technology (WIT) who helped make Atlanta feel like home and helped Marci to build a network of friends and colleagues to whom she still remains close. She’s never forgotten the support she received.

Today Marci McCarthy is CEO and President at T.E.N., a national technology and security executive networking organization facilitating peer-to-peer relationships among top executives, industry visionaries, and solutions providers through the ISE® Executive Forum and Awards.

Marci believes that with success comes social responsibility. She would love to see more technology and cybersecurity executives pay it forward and lend a hand to the nonprofit community by sitting on the board of a nonprofit whose mission speaks to them, by volunteering, or simply by being an influencer for good in the community.

A TechBridge board member since , Marci first got to know us when she attended our inaugural Digital Ball. It was a celebration and a time to connect with people who share a desire to support nonprofits and help us make a community impact. As a technology professional, she realized this was how she wanted to make a difference.

Here’s a video we think you’ll enjoy about how Marci pays it forward and the impact her efforts have made in the technology and nonprofit community.

About Our #BetterTogether Campaign

We are proud to have assisted so many organizations on the front lines of social change in our communities — alleviating homelessness, fighting poverty, helping kids do better in school, making sure seniors get proper meals, and so much more.

We created the #BetterTogether campaign so that we can showcase some of the important efforts of the nonprofits and people we’ve worked with. And because social change is a community effort, we also wanted to showcase the generous sponsors, amazing technology partners, tireless volunteers, and staff. Without them, we couldn’t do our work.

We feel that these stories exemplify the transformational work that can happen when organizations and individuals work hard — together — towards a common goal. We hope that hearing these stories is as inspirational to you as it is to us.
