American Water recently announced its designation as a Champion of Board Diversity by the Forum of Executive Women for the seventh consecutive year. The Forum of Executive Women, the Greater Philadelphia Region’s premier women’s organization, honors the top public companies with 30% or more women on their respective boards, annually.
The Camden-based utility was recognized as one of 37 companies in Greater Philadelphia that are paving the way for gender equity.
“American Water is honored to once again receive recognition as a Champion of Board Diversity by the Forum of Executive Women,” M. Susan Hardwick, CEO and president, American Water, said. “We are extremely fortunate to have such an engaged, talented and diverse board. It is a model for effective governance that adds true value for all of our stakeholders.”
The Forum of Executive Women’s annual Women in Leadership Report, which will be released in October and is a collaboration with PwC, provides an annual examination on diversity in the boardrooms and executive suites of the Top 100 public companies in the Philadelphia region.
