As co-sponsors of the event with Bell Nunnally & Martin and PNC Bank, we were honored to celebrate Tina Bowers (MBA '04) and Cristina Candia Lopez, who received a graduate marketing certificate from the Cox School, who were both recognized for their outstanding leadership in the DE&I space.

Ms. Bowers, Vice President, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer for Children's Health, encouraged the audience to "stay excited and passionate, and determined to do this great work in the spaces where we exist."

Ms. Lopez, Vice President, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and HR Operations
for Village MD, shared the company's goal is "to close the health equity gap... by looking at where barriers to healthcare access really are."

Congratulations to Tina, Cristina, and all the 2023 honorees.
