The Texas Diversity Magazine is proud to announce our inaugural Houston Power 50 award. On the cusp of Women’s History Month, we want to honor women in the C-Suite from top companies such as H-E-B, Valic and Goldman Sachs, to name a few, who are making an effort to do great work within their companies, departments and communities in the city of Houston. Now we celebrate their hard work and progressive initiatives that are instrumental to making the gender gap in the C-Suite a little smaller.
Selection for this distinction was based on each individual’s contributions 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 technology, health care, oil & gas, 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.”
It is important that we champion for women in these positions so that they can be an example for other women who aspire to have roles in the C-Suite, and it be known that it is possible and sustainable. Please join us, as we celebrate the women below in all their past, present and future success.
