Little PINK Book Celebrates Black History Month with Top-Ranking African American Women

ATLANTA, Georgia – February 4, 2013 – What is the greatest barrier to career success: being a woman or being Black?

Only 1.1 percent of corporate officers in the top 500 public companies are African American women. These women hold just 1.9 percent of board seats.

Little PINK Book celebrates Black History Month and the achievements of barrier-breaking women in business with editorial features of top-ranking African American women:

  • Kimberly Nelson, SVP, External Relations and President, General Mills Foundation
  • Cathy Ross, SVP, CFO, FedEx
  • Ann-Marie Campbell, Southern Division President, The Home Depot
  • Angela Thomas-Anderson, B2B Global Procurement Leader, Kimberly-Clark

Says Little PINK Book CEO Cynthia Good, “Women everywhere can break barriers too by seeing how these remarkable women did it. They are a huge inspiration.”

Sponsors include FedEx, Hewlett Packard, and Deloitte. The series runs every Wednesday through February.
