In celebration of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, we want to honor women in the C-Suite (CEO, CFO, COO, Senior Executives, etc) from top companies 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.
