I was truly honored to accept the NAFE award today on behalf of IBM and its women executives worldwide, recognizing that IBM as a top company for female executives for 15 years in a row!
I would personally like to thank Ginni Rometty for her leadership of IBM. We have been improving the % of female executives for a while, but 2013 was the largest increase in our history.
IBM’s view of diversity is that having a diverse executive base ignites innovation!
On behalf of IBM and women everywhere, thank you for the NAFE focus on women’s leadership and on this honor!
