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.
