IMRI’s President & CEO, Martha Daniel, Honored by The White House as a Champion of Change
ALISO VIEJO, CA – On Tuesday, March 25, 2014 The White House honored Information Management Resources, Inc.’s (IMRI’s) President & CEO, Martha Daniel, and nine other leaders who are “Women Veteran Leader Champions of Change.” The event honored women veteran industry leaders, highlighting their incredible contributions to our nation’s business, public and community service sectors.
In his State of the Union Address, President Obama declared, “We are stronger when America fields a full team.” As we move to leverage the power of a fully represented “Team America,” the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) is advancing the cause of our 2.2 million women veterans. Women veterans are one of the fastest-growing populations of veterans. Now 10%, by 2020, they will constitute over 12% of all veterans.
As the nation celebrates Women’s History Month, it is important to salute women Veterans for their accomplishments and contributions to society. They have broken barriers and capitalized on the many leadership opportunities afforded through military service. We know that women Veterans are models of character, courage and commitment who continue to blaze trails and open doors. “I am honored by the fact that women veterans in general are being recognized in this nation for the work that we’ve done to keep everybody safe,” says Ms. Daniel.
The Champions of Change program was created as an opportunity for the White House to feature individuals doing extraordinary things to empower and inspire members of their communities. The event was moderated by The Honorable Gina S. Farrisee, Assistant Secretary, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Elisa Basnight, JD, MPA, Director of the Center for Women Veterans, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
