Women We Admire is pleased to announce The Top 50 Women Leaders of Arizona for 2024

NEW YORK, May 15, 2024 Women We Admire is pleased to announce The Top 50 Women Leaders of Arizona for 2024. Home to the Grand Canyon, one of the seven wonders of the world, Arizona is a top bucket list destination, but the state's diversified economy thrives on so much more than tourism dollars. Other prominent industries include healthcare, bioscience, technology, defense, manufacturing, education, hospitality, and financial services.

Proficient, skillful women leaders serve in high-level roles in all these industries and more in the Grand Canyon State.

This year's honorees feature an innovative leader in the financial services sector, Tiffany Johnson. An award-winning executive who has worked with the world's top embedded finance and consumer-facing payment programs, Johnson was recruited as Chief Product Officer for NMI, a global payments enablement platform, in 2023.

An industry veteran with over 25 years of experience, honoree Barbara Whye is the Vice President of Inclusion and Diversity for Apple, ensuring DEI efforts are prioritized at the leading global technology company that employs over 150,000 people worldwide.

Lastly, we extend our honors to Nadya Bliss, an experienced leader of science and technology organizations with over two decades in the defense, security, and higher education sectors. Bliss serves as the Executive Director of the Global Security Initiative for Arizona State University, where she oversees and solves complex security challenges for one of the nation's most innovative universities.

Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of The Top 50 Women Leaders of Arizona for 2024.
