CHANTILLY, VA, March 26, 2019 – The U.S. Women’s Chamber of Commerce has named Citizant, Inc. as an honoree of the 2019 USWCC Women Contractor Awards in the “Innovation and Performance” category. Citizant is a leading provider of IT modernization, Agile/DevOps, and enterprise data management solutions to the U.S. government.
