TIAW bestows the annual TIAW World of Difference Lifetime
Achievement Award to one woman who has truly made a difference in the lives of women.
Ms. Natividad is a recognized leader for women in the United States
and throughout the world. She is Chair of the GlobeWomen Research & Education Institute, President, Global Summit of Women and Chair, Corporate Women Directors International, which promotes the increased participation of women on corporate boards globally.
Ms. Natividad is the force behind the 31-year old Global Summit of Women, informally called “The Davos for Women”. As CWDI Chair, she has produced 31 reports in 24 years on women directors in different countries, regions, and industries and has convened women board directors and executives to “ring the opening bell” at 21 Stock Exchanges based in different countries to date -- a business tradition in which she feels women must be seen.
Ms. Natividad’s commitment to promoting women, nationally and internationally, stems from her decade-long involvement with the National Women’s Political Caucus, a 50-year-old bipartisan organization dedicated to electing and appointing more women to public office.
