The prestigious award is in its 17th year, and is featured in the publication’s summer issue.

Nominated by their employers for their passion, their potential, and their positive influence both inside and outside the workplace, the winners represent corporations, government agencies, and nonprofits from across North America and Europe. Their first-person accounts of lessons learned during their careers—featured in the magazine's print and online editions—are insightful and thought provoking. The women highlighted in this issue are as diverse as the industries and locations they work in, and the impacts they have had on their workplaces and their world.

She also has experience litigating class and collective actions, including wage and hour cases, as well as experience handling EEOC systemic investigations and Commissioner charges. In addition to her litigation experience, Angela counsels employers on strategies for avoiding litigation.
