Women in Electronics (WE) was founded in 2017 to create a community for women in the electronics industry. The 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is dedicated to the professional and personal development of women in the industry.
Today, at their 4th Annual Leadership Conference, WE announced Holly Good, National Distribution Manager for Cornell Dubilier Electronics and Founding Advisory Board Member for Women in Electronics, as the 2020 recipient of the “WE Recognizes” award.
The WE Recognizes award acknowledges and celebrates women who have demonstrated outstanding achievement within the organization’s goals to Empower, Advocate, Develop, and Celebrate women in the Electronics Industry. WE Founder and President Jackie Mattox said, “The woman receiving this award demonstrates the organizational values of honor, authenticity, courage, and commitment by her conduct personally and professionally and embodies a spirit of unity within the WE organization and the industry.”
Head of Supplier Management for Newark Element 14/Avnet and WE Recognizes 2019 recipient, Heather Fulara, officially presented Mrs. Good with this honor. Mrs. Fulara recognized Holly’s contributions not only to Women in Electronics, but to the industry as a whole. “Holly is well respected in our industry as a talented and trusted partner. She possesses many strengths as a leader, and her positive attitude lifts up those around her, encouraging others and unifying people. Holly has been a critical link in the success of Women in Electronics – committed to the growth and development of women in our industry by getting the growing number of regional chapters up and running, and by supporting WE’s sponsorship efforts,” said Mrs. Fulara.
Mrs. Good was thrilled. “What a surprise and honor to be the recipient of this year’s WE Recognizes award. It has been a privilege to serve as one of the Founding Advisory Board members and to have a hand in the development of the organization,” she said. “The WE core values of honor, authenticity, courage, and commitment are values I try to uphold in all areas of my life, so this is very meaningful to me.
