WIN works to foster partnerships that help create a community of support and best practices for its female employees while creating a sustainable advantage for Cardinal Health. WIN is supported by an executive sponsor, steering committee composed of senior leaders from all business segments, an external coach and a dedicated program manager. The network has 2,000 men and women members throughout the company and offers mentor programs in all of its chapters. WIN also partners with highly regarded women's organizations for insight, benchmarking and programming.
“It is an honor to be recognized for our efforts with the 2012 ACE award. As part of the overall Cardinal Health diversity and inclusion strategy, our Women’s Initiative Network has meaningful impact on the development of our leaders. We know that focusing on women and diversity is not only the right thing to do but it is also the smart thing to do – for our customers, our communities and our business,” said Mike Kaufmann, chief executive officer of the Pharmaceutical Segment of Cardinal Health.
