Organization continues to lead by example in the area of diversity and inclusion
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (Jun 27, 2019) – Professional Dimensions continues to lead by example in the area of diversity and inclusion by once again electing its most racially diverse board of directors in the organization’s history at its 2019 Annual Meeting Wednesday night. Women of color will hold 35% of board positions for its 2019-20 term, which begins September 1.
“As a leading women’s organization for over 40 years, we think it’s important to set an example for how to live out the values of inclusion,” said newly-elected Board President-elect, Judith Mouton. “We want to use our collective power to help build a culture in our community that embraces women of all backgrounds and benefits from wide-ranging leadership perspectives.”
In addition to being racially diverse, Professional Dimensions’ incoming leaders represent three generations, 11 industries and career levels ranging from young professionals to seasoned executives.
