WOODSTOCK, IL – July 13, 2021 – OWC®, the premier zero-emissions Mac and PC technology company, and a respected provider of Memory, External Drives, SSDs, Mac & PC docking solutions, and performance upgrade kits, announced today the company was awarded Best CEO for Women by the 2021 Comparably Awards.
"I'm excited to see Larry and OWC recognized in this way," said Jennifer Soule, President of OWC. "I started at OWC as a temporary employee over 20 years ago, working directly with Larry, who has always been supportive, even creating a new position where OWC needed me as the company grew and made me the first non-founder President. I've always been proud of the education and internal advancement opportunities available throughout the organization throughout my time. Everyone at OWC truly has the same opportunity to shine."
Best CEOs for Women was based solely on anonymous sentiment ratings from female employees about the chief executive officer. These Comparably Awards were derived from sentiment ratings provided by employees who anonymously rated their employers on Comparably.com during 12 months from June 30, 2020, through June 30, 2021.
"It is a true honor to receive this award from Comparably," said Larry O'Connor, CEO, and Founder of OWC. "Each year, I endeavor to make sure OWC's culture is of diversity and inclusion. Keeping a safe, well-balanced work environment has always been my number one goal at OWC. This award illustrates that OWC treats everyone equally and encourages opportunity for all."
