Debra Baker, head of Global Risk Solutions at BNY Mellon, has been named to The Network Journal’s 2016 list of 25 Influential Black Women in Business.
The 25 Influential Black Women in Business Awards honor women whose professional achievements have significantly impacted an industry or profession, and who also have made an important contribution to her community. The Network Journal is a quarterly magazine that provides news and commentaries on issues that affect the growth of business and the advancement of professionals in the workplace for an audience of predominantly African-American professionals, corporate executives and small-business owners.
“The women we honor in the 18th year of the awards span occupations, industries and expertise, and they share the same traits when it comes to their career and community service: passion, drive and focus. We salute them for achieving significant levels of success in their businesses and professional careers and for their myriad contributions to their community,” said Aziz Gueye Adetimirin, publisher and CEO of The Network Journal.
