“I am honored to be among the amazing women from all parts of the globe who were recognized by the Stevie Awardsthis year,” said Turner. “Let’s be clear, this is a team award. It took the vision of our CEO, Jeff Stone to want diversity in his leadership team. Then as the first female candidate to join the leadership team, I had to be comfortable being the only female. Most importantly, all three female executives had to be the best candidates for jobs which only takes a tremendous amount of hard work and sacrifices. It is never one person that makes diversity happen.”
