Meet our Women Leaders


Links also exist between having more women directors and corporate sustainability, as well as with economic growth, since more diverse leadership teams can cater to a broader array of stakeholder needs and concerns. Unlocking these benefits requires focused action to address the underlying causes of persistent gender gaps in a systemic way. 

2016 Global Gender Gap Report, World Economic Forum

Senior leadership teams set the tone and the norms for any business and without strong inclusive female leadership, it’s even harder for women to thrive and succeed in historically male-dominated industries.  

Our industry’s average workforce of 20% women drops even further for senior roles. But we are proud to say that we are kicking goals with our Board of Directors, Executive Leadership Team and General Managers, of whom 50% are women.  

Meet them and learn a bit more about their leadership journey, who helped them along the way and what they are doing to grow gender diversity in their work environment.
