Ten successful women in Houston have been named as the Class of 2016 for the Texas Executive Women (TEW)/Women on the Move award.
The women will be recognized at a November luncheon along with the 2016 winner of the group’s Rising Star award. “The judges worked hard to select ten amazing women for this year’s class,” said luncheon co-chair Shira Yoshor. “Every member of the 2016 group is outstanding.”
The Women on the Move annual recognition has been part of TEW since 1985. It was the brainchild of successful Houston businessman Robert Sakowitz and was started during a pivotal time in Houston. During that first year, Kathy Whitmire was serving as the first woman mayor of Houston; and other strong women were holding key positions around the city. All of them serving as examples to teenage girls, who to this day benefit from scholarships raised at the luncheon.
