This week Newsweek and The Daily Beast identified and honored 150 of those “Extraordinary Women" who are "local heroes, and the growing network of powerful women who support their efforts." The global status and influence of women have changed dramatically in the recent decades. Many determined women have fought against odds to become heads of states, develop breakthroughs in technology and science, or establish impactful organizations that are improving the way of life for many in underserved areas around the world.
Gabi Zedlmayer, vice president of HP's Office of Global Social Innovation, was selected and recognized by this exceptional list for her dedication in maximizing results from the philanthropic efforts of HP, the world's largest technology company. Gabi and her team work aggressively to tackle critical social issues in education and health through strategic collaborations with non-profits and social entrepreneurs to serve developing communities around the world.
