Navient, an ACA International member company based in Wilmington, Delaware, announced Thursday that it has been recognized as a Corporate Champion by the Women’s Forum of New York.
Navient, which has four women on its nine-member board, was honored at the Women’s Forum of New York’s Breakfast of Corporate Champions, which celebrated 233 companies in the S&P 500 and Fortune 1000 that have achieved at least 40% female representation on their boards.
“Congratulations to Navient’s CEO and Board as a 2023 honoree at the Women’s Forum of New York Breakfast of Corporate Champions for having 40% women on their board exceeding the national S&P 500 average of 33%,” said Janice Ellig, CEO of Ellig Group, and founder and chair of the Women’s Forum of New York’s Breakfast of Corporate Champions. “Navient’s commitment to gender diversity has been recognized for exceeding the national average at each biennial Breakfast of Corporate Champions since 2015.”
Launched in 2011, the Breakfast of Corporate Champions is the signature event of the Women’s Forum of New York’s “Corporate Board Initiative,” focused on accelerating the advancement of women on boards across all industries and on striving to achieve gender balance on corporate boards by 2025.
“Promoting diversity and inclusion at all levels broadens our perspectives and equips us to reach our highest potential,” said Linda Mills, chair of Navient’s Board of Directors, who represented the company at the event. “We’re pleased to be among the distinguished companies honored today who are promoting greater gender diversity in the boardroom and beyond.”
