Ginni Rometty is an American business executive who previously served as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of IBM, becoming the first woman to head the company in 2012. She retired at the end of 2020 after almost 40 years with the company.
As CEO, Rometty advanced IBM’s commitment to diversity and inclusion by "extending parental leave and making it easier for women to return to the workforce through a “returnships” program with hands-on work experience in emerging technologies. This pioneering work was recognized in 2018 by the prestigious Catalyst Award for advancing diversity and women’s initiatives. IBM is the only tech company to have earned this recognition in the past 20 years and the only company ever to be honored four times." (Source)
