Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2009
The White House Project, a national, nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization, whose mission is to advance women's leadership in all communities and sectors, up to the U.S. presidency; is pleased to announce the selection of Ms. Stephanie Woodruff, Chief Revenue Officer, AverQ, Inc., to serve on the Corporate Council for 2009.
Founded in 2006, The White House Project's Corporate Council fulfills a unique mission: to engage senior business women on issues that arise at the nexus of government policy, private philanthropy, academia, and business, and to facilitate engagement between senior business women in the private and public sectors. Members are corporate women who are active agents of change within their corporations, and are in, or have access to, their executive suite. Members bring their intellectual and social capital to changing the perception of women leaders, and to advancing women's leadership in both the private and public sectors.
Ms. Catherine Gray, Associate Director of the Midwest Region, White House Project is enthusiastic about Woodruff. "In addition to Ms. Woodruff's impressive history as an innovator and leader in business, she has a contagious commitment to advancing women's leadership across all sectors. She is a fantastic addition to our Corporate Council."
Over the next year, the Council plans to raise the visibility of women business leaders in the media and within national and international venues, build relationships across sectors to further the reach/impact of the Council's efforts, and communicate on the status of women's leadership in America. By filling the leadership pipeline with a richly diverse, critical mass of women, The White House Project makes American institutions, businesses and government truly representative. Through multi-platform programs, The White House Project creates a culture where America's most valuable untapped resource--women--can succeed in all realms.
"I'm truly honored and excited to be part of such an amazing group of talented and powerful women. I look forward to serving the Council and providing creative solutions to today's gender, leadership gap issues," said Ms. Stephanie Woodruff, Chief Revenue Officer, AverQ, Inc. "At this critical moment in history, the Corporate Council will better enable corporations to achieve their goals of providing the richest and most diverse leadership for the 21st century in the global world."
