BWA BOARD MEMBER GINA ADAMS HAILED AS
ONE OF THE "10 MOST COMPELLING WOMEN IN WASHINGTON NOW"
Gina Adams, senior vice president government affairs, FedEx Corporation and a member of The Black Women's Agenda, Inc.'s (BWA) Board of Directors was recently featured as one of the "10 Most Compelling Women in Washington Now," in Elle magazine. "By the dint of their brilliance, brains, and guts, [these] women make Washington work," wrote editor-at-large Rachael Combe. As FedEx's top lobbyist, Gina is responsible for shaping and promoting the interests of all of the corporation's companies. She sits numerous boards, including American University, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Town Hall Education Arts and Recreation Campus (THEARC), the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Washington Performing Arts Society, Fight for Children, Inc. and the DC Public Education Fund.
To quote the Elle article: "On any given day, Gina can be found meeting with a member of Congress, flying to the FedEx hub in Paris to give a tour of the operation, chairing a gala at the Kennedy Center, or going back to her old high school in southeast DC to "pay it forward." Brava Gina! BWA is so proud to count you among our sisters!
