New York, NY May 18, 2020 – Business Wire – Amanda Grant is advancing women forward on a broad scale according to a global competition conducted by the nonprofit Business Council for Peace (#Bpeace).
The Bpeace Women Forward Awards recognize 10 inspiring individuals who are leading change and providing mentorship, capital and support for women to thrive in the workplace and in society.
Amanda Grant, Calibre One, is turning the approach to hiring women, and other diverse candidates, on its head with the invention of CQ™ (Culture Quotient™), a groundbreaking tool that aligns potential hires to the company’s Diversity & Inclusion goals. CQ also provides specific guidance to ensure candidates are set up for success through intentional inclusion by the companies hiring them.
Throughout her career in financial services, Amanda has looked for ways to mentor, advocate and open doors for women. “Elevating women in my orbit is simply integral to who I am as a person.”
On June 4, 2020, Bpeace will recognize the Gold, Silver and Bronze Women Forward winners with a virtual award celebration. Following a global call for nominations, a blue-ribbon panel of CEO-level judges selected from among 51 finalists representing a range of industries and geographies.
Bpeace CEO, Toni Maloney noted, “We conduct the annual Women Forward competition to shine a light on these champions and set them up as role models on a global stage. The businesswomen that Bpeace advises in crisis-affected countries are hungry to learn how to crack the gender code. This year’s winners generously shared what they do that give women a quantum leap.”
