We're pleased to be a sponsor of Break the ceiling touch the sky ®, an event which gives participants a tremendous opportunity to learn from others, share best practices, and chart their own individual courses for success."

Colleen Lindholz, President, Kroger Health shared, "I'm proud of the role so many talented women leaders are playing to help businesses get back to growth despite the ongoing challenges of the pandemic. Together, we are driving change, creating opportunity, and defining a more innovative, inclusive future. In healthcare, we see it every day in the more than 2200 Kroger Health pharmacies and 220 clinics across the USA. Our team of 22,000 healthcare professionals - who come from all walks of life and all types of backgrounds - are working hard to prevent disease, elevate health outcomes, and help people live healthier lives. This has never been as evident as it has been during our fight against COVID- 19. Together, our team - along with many other courageous partners - is leading testing solutions, creating wellness programs, and instituting safety protocols that are truly making a difference. We are proud to once again champion the cause at the 2020 World Edition of Break the ceiling touch the sky."

Inspired by the many sharings of success on gender diversity in particular we have made rapid progress, going from zero women leaders on our Executive team to over 30% in under six months. Since then we have step-changed our business results. Learning and sharing across industries on Diversity & Inclusion is a critical part of our game plan for success and we are proud to be a sponsor of both the 2020 World Edition and Middle East Edition of the summit."
