CHICAGO, March 23, 2021 /3BL Media/ -- United Airlines Holdings, Inc. (UAL) announced recently that Laysha Ward is joining its Board of Directors. Ward, currently Executive Vice President and Chief External Engagement Officer of Target Corporation, brings an impressive resume with more than three decades of corporate leadership experience to the UAL Board.
March is Women’s History Month and today is International Women’s Day. They are both reminders to commemorate and celebrate the vital role of women in American history, our society and in our workplace. They also give us a chance to recognize the progress we’ve made as a society to remove barriers that constrain opportunities for women. Many of these constraints, like the right to own property or vote, today seem unimaginable. But looking forward, we must continue identifying and eliminating barriers that persist for women and all individuals.
International Women’s Day, annually held on the 8th March, is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women, but the day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. At Bayer, we have the privilege to co-lead our global Business Resource Group GROW which stands for Growing Representation and Opportunities for Women. In these roles, we would like to use the platform of our CEO to celebrate IWD 2021.
