Dr. Carolyn Turbyfill has consistently shown her commitment to creating an environment where women can feel supported and grow in their technology careers. She is a Founding Member of WITI. She has also served on the advisory board of Astia (www.astia.org), formerly the Women's Technology Cluster. In 2007, she led a delegation of distinguished women to China for the People to People Ambassador Program.

Carolyn's first research project in the field of Computer Science was the Wisconsin Benchmark that pioneered benchmarks by which relational database systems are measured today. She has advanced her career with milestones consisting of the first commercial implementations of leading edge products such as: the first firewall appliance, SunScreen SPF-100 and SKIP, one of the first commercial Virtual Private Networks (VPN); the first managed security service and the first round trip email marketing service.
