Harvard Business School has honored our very own CEO Phyllis Papani Godwin for Making a Difference in our world. Phyllis graduated from the Harvard-Radcliffe Program in Business Administration in 1949 and trail blazed the path for other women to graduate as well.

Phyllis believes for-profit and nonprofit organizations benefit from the perspective that women provide.  We couldn’t agree more!

Congratulations to Phyllis and all of her accomplishments as a leader and trail blazer for women in our community – we are extremely appreciative to have her as a leader of our company!
