2018 Inaugural Power 50 Award
The Texas Diversity Magazine takes pride in announcing our inaugural Power 50 award. In celebration of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, we want to honor women in the C-Suite from top companies such as H-E-B, Valic, Goldman Sachs, PepsiCo, AT&T, and Wells Fargo, to name a few, who endeavor to improve not just their departments and companies, but their communities as well. Now we celebrate their hard work and progressive initiatives that serve to make the gender gap in the C-suite just that much smaller.
Selection for this distinction was based on each individual’s contribution to business growth and strategic direction, proven record of innovation and accomplishments in their area of expertise, and their ability to serve as an active role model by mentoring the next generation of professionals in their industry. Each awardee stands atop their field in several industries, such as oil & gas, healthcare, technology, financial services, government, and retail. The wide range of industries represented in this group of distinguished executives speaks to the distinctive importance their role plays in the new corporate arena.
“The Inaugural 2018 Power 50 award honors a diverse range of executive leaders of the highest caliber,” said Dennis Kennedy, Founder and Chairman of the National Diversity Council. “Our team takes great pride in honoring this group of accomplished women that continue to push innovation in business and beyond.”
Women in these positions must be championed and honored so that they can serve as a standard by which other aspiring women might aim to achieve, or even surpass. They are examples that women can, and do, have sustainable roles in the C-Suite. So, please, join us in celebration of all the women below for their past, present, and future success.
