DEARBORN, Mich., April 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WPP's Team Detroit honored five employees with WINning Women awards for their extraordinary and inspirational commitment to making a difference, both at work and at home.
The event was hosted by the agency's Women's INitiative (WIN) – which is part an IMPRINT - an employee resource group dedicated to fostering a diverse, inclusive workplace in alignment with Team Detroit's values and business objectives.
According to WIN Founder and Initiative Lead Kiran Lenz, nominations for winners began during the agency's Women's History Month celebration in March. "We wanted to recognize the women we work alongside every day – women who have made significant contributions to our success as an agency and also in the broader community," she said. "These are the often unsung heroes who continue to inspire others at work and at home."
This year's WINning Women award winners are:
- Traci Armstrong, SVP, Director Global Talent Acquisition
- Margaret Bowie, VP, Director of Operations Program Management
- Noricka Greyer, Program Manager
- Karen Kaley, SVP, Account Director
- Kristen Schweitzer, SVP, Global Production Operations Director
"These women embody the caliber of leadership we value throughout the Agency," said David Murphy, Team Detroit President and Imprint Executive Sponsor. They are smart, committed and accomplished. Their positive impact has not gone unnoticed by those around them."
Team Detroit employees were asked last month to nominate women colleagues that they believed were extraordinary. These nominations were then reviewed based on a robust range of criteria including career accomplishments as well as accomplishments outside of their core work functions, the impacts of those accomplishments, the dedication and effort involved with those accomplishments, and the general respect and regard for the nominee by their coworkers.
