Annual program recognizes influential female Georgia business leaders for
professional and personal excellence
Online PR News – 02-June-2020 – Atlanta, GA – OnBoard, the leading authority on women in the boardroom and executive suites of Georgia public companies and a catalyst to increase female directors on all for-profit company boards, announced the 2020 honorees to its Executive Leadership Honor Roll. Awarded annually since 2007, the Executive Leadership Honor Roll recognizes three Georgia-based female business leaders who represent the talented women who are in the pipeline for future corporate board positions.
To be eligible for the Executive Leadership Honor Roll, a candidate must be Georgia-based and hold a significant leadership role that makes her eligible for corporate board membership. OnBoard also prioritizes women who excel in their professional roles, as validated by their colleagues, while also preparing the next generation of female leaders through active advocacy and mentoring.
The 2020 Executive Leadership Honor Roll class includes three exemplary leaders recognized for their commitment to drive change for some of the most recognizable global brands:
