DirectWomen is proud to present its 2017 Board Diversity Award to Visa, Inc. As of 2017, Visa had three women on its twelve-person board, two of whom are lawyers and former DirectWomen Sandra Day O’Connor Board Excellence Awardees: Mary B. Cranston and Suzanne Nora Johnson. Three of ten members of Visa’s top management team were also women, including General Counsel Kelly Mahon Tullier. Visa’s recognition of the value women lawyers bring to its leadership team is an example of the message of DirectWomen in action.
