“I just never want to stop trying to make a difference — that’s what drives me every day.” – Beth A. Brooke-Marciniak
Beth A. Brooke-Marciniak, Global Vice Chair, Public Policy; Diversity and Inclusiveness Sponsor at EY received the highest honor from the NCAA this week – the Theodore Roosevelt Award. The award is bestowed upon NCAA athletes of outstanding achievement and distinguished accomplishment.
Beth has public policy responsibility for the firm’s operations in more than 150 countries. In addition, she is the global sponsor for EY’s Diversity and Inclusiveness efforts.
Brooke-Marciniak has created an exemplary career with EY, first joining the firm in 1981. EY is IWF’s partner in the Women Athletes Business Network, an international program aimed at advancing leadership opportunities for elite female athletes who are transitioning from sport by connecting them with IWF member mentors.
“EY has given me a wonderful platform to build a wonderful working world,” Brooke-Marciniak said. “We try to help female athletes transition into business after their careers in sports end. We should hire former female student-athletes if we want women who can reach the top ranks in business.”
Three legendary IWF International Hall of Fame Honorees are also recipients of the award; Sally Ride, Madeleine Albright and Donna de Varona.
