Microsoft's Julie Larson-Green has been selected as one of sixteen honorees of the Puget Sound Business Journal's Women of Influence award program. This program shines the spotlight on local businesswomen, community leaders, and philanthropists who are a force in the region.
"The Puget Sound Business Journal's Women of Influence Awards honors women within the business community who: have the authority and power to move the needle in their business; are respected for accomplishments within their industries; give back to the community; and are sought out as respected advisors and mentors within their field of influence," the award program states.
Microsoft's Executive Vice President, Devices and Studios, Julie Larson-Green is honored for her influence and role at Microsoft. Among the honorees, we have Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Director of Global Health, Toni Hoover, who is also being honored. No female executive from Apple or Google are on the list.
Julie Larson-Green, who took over as the Windows operating system boss when Sinofsky left, gave up that position to Terry Myerson. Larson-Green now runs the company's hardware division, which includes phones, tablets, PCs and Xbox. She also has responsibility over all games, music, video and other entertainment.
There will be a Women of Influence Awards Ceremony taking place on November 13th at the Hyatt Regency Bellevue in Seattle and you can reserve tickets at the VIA link below if you wish to attend.
