The George Family Foundation recognized 84 women leaders last week who are making remarkable contributions to building the Twin Cities. Ecumen CEO Kathryn Roberts was honored with such exceptional leaders as U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, St. Thomas University President Julie Sullivan, former Carlson Companies Chair & CEO Marilyn Carlson Nelson and HealthPartners CEO Mary Brainerd.
"I find it immensely gratifying the number of talented women who have led the Twin Cities in building institutions and solving significant social problems,” said Penny George, president of the George Family Foundation. “I hope the community realizes how very fortunate we are for their dedication and their leadership."
Added Bill George, former chair & CEO of Medtronic who currently teaches at Harvard Business School, “Ever since Penny and I moved to Minnesota in 1970, we have been astounded by the remarkable women who have built the character, culture and quality of life of the Twin Cities. These women are leading or have led our major corporations, government organizations, nonprofit foundations, health care, universities and colleges and the arts. We are proud to recognize these outstanding leaders.”
