Dentsply Sirona’s CHRO receives 2018 Women in Leadership Executive Impact Award

Awards and accolades

Linkage, Inc., a global leadership development company, honored Maureen MacInnis on Wednesday, November 14, at a special awards ceremony during its 2018 Women in Leadership Institute held in Phoenix, Arizona. MacInnis was one of four award recipients who were honored.

The Executive Impact Award recognizes leaders who have demonstrated a deep commitment to advancing women leaders and have accelerated the growth of women in their organization and community. A six-member jury selected MacInnis, Senior Vice President, Chief Human Resources and Communications at Dentsply Sirona, for one of this year's awards.

"This is an honor I share with all the women of Dentsply Sirona," MacInnis says. "Our leadership and career development efforts are sustainable because we are taking action together. Every week, I learn about new examples, confirming the strength of our global Women Inspired Network and the results for our customers and colleagues."

MacInnis leads a global team of approximately 310 Human Resources and Communications professionals and is a member of the company's Executive Team. Dentsply Sirona employees nominated MacInnis for the award in recognition for her efforts to advance women and her commitment to promoting diversity across the organization.

Advancing women leaders

MacInnis established Dentsply Sirona's Women Inspired Network (WIN), a platform for women leaders at Dentsply Sirona to support the acceleration of their career development by building key leadership competencies and developing stronger networks. Now in its fourth year, the current cohort includes 27 participants, who join the more than 75 who are already part of the Network.

"I view my role as that of a steward," MacInnis explains. "You're remembered for what you build, and I constantly ask myself, how can I help the next generation?"

Inspirational global forum

Linkage hosted a panel with the four award recipients. On a stage in front of more than 900 female executives from Fortune 1000 companies, nonprofits and global government agencies around the world, the honorees shared insights into how their personal experiences shaped their careers.

Since 1999, Linkage's Women in Leadership Institute™ (WIL), a four-day immersive learning experience, has equipped more than 10,000 women with actionable strategies to overcome the seven hurdles women often face in the workplace.
