SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT, HUMAN RESOURCES
Passionate about helping people – in her company and
across the community – and taking a pay-it-forward approach,
Kelly Gray has fostered the FedEx Ground women’s leadership
and direction, the company has implemented a formal women’s
leadership program that brings together women in different
management functions and business areas for year-long learning
experiences. Nearly 100 women have participated, leading to
countless promotions and personal goal achievements.
As co-chair of United Way of Allegheny County’s Women’s
Leadership Council, Kelly has provided inspired leadership to a
growing network of female philanthropists. They represent the
fourth-largest donor base in the United Way, with 2,064 members
contributing more than $9 million to the community last year.
She sits on the Magee-Womens Research Institute & Foundation
Board and is a member of the Pittsburgh chapter of the
International Women’s Forum, a producer of innovative leadership
and executive development programs. She was recognized
recently with the HR Leadership Award from the Pittsburgh
Business Times and named one of Diversity Journal’s “Women
Worth Watching” in 2015.
SUMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.
Audrey Dunning is a mindful leader who has harnessed her
excellent listening skills and ability to recognize good people
and ideas to create a successful roadmap for herself and
other women. Under Audrey’s leadership, Summa, an award-winning digital solutions consultancy of 200-plus technology
professionals, has achieved sales growth from $5 million to a
projected $35 million over the past decade. It’s no accident that
almost a quarter of the company’s employees are women, as
is half of its leadership team. That’s thanks to such initiatives as
Summa’s Apprenticeship Program, which gives women tools to
stake their claims in business and technology.
In the community, Audrey encourages her peers to succeed
as a member of PowerLink, a nonprofit organization that
provides guidance to women business owners, and through
United Way of Allegheny County’s Women's Leadership
Council, sharing her time and philanthropy to help women in
need. Audrey served on the advisory board of the Pittsburgh
Technology Council's Pittsburgh Tech Women's Network, and
recently finished her first term as a director for the Federal
Reserve Bank of Cleveland Pittsburgh Branch.
