NEW YORK, NY, September 14, 2018 – CSBM congratulates Gretchen Liga and Tina Perez who were nominated and selected by Profiles In Diversity Journal as Women Worth Watching.  The organization identifies women who have proven their leadership potential and skills.  Those nominated were selected through a process that values career success and sterling reputations.  The selected profiles are featured in the Profiles in Diversity – Summer 2018 Issue for the 2018 Women Worth Watching Award, available now.

“If I were to describe the 126 women in this issue in one word, I would choose the word courageous. Why courageous, you ask? Because we live in challenging and worrisome times, and taking on a career, any career, is fraught with stresses at work, family obligations, and political and global issues. At least, that is my take after reading the essays that are contained in this historic issue.”

–       James R. Rector, Founder and Publisher, and the Profiles in Diversity Journal team

This is the 17th Annual Edition for Women Worth Watching.  Gretchen and Tina join 2,000 women leaders in receiving this distinction, who come from every field and position in companies across the world.  CSBM recognizes Gretchen Liga for her leadership as the company’s Senior Development Specialist and Tina Perez for her leadership as the Director of Program Management.
