Leading Ladies

Leading today. Leading tomorrow.

We set out to create a platform for women at PGT Innovations™ to LEARN, ENCOURAGE, CELEBRATE accomplishments and become ALLIES. Embracing each other through membership and building one another for leadership. We are the Leading Ladies of PGT Innovations.

Creating a culture of gender diversity is a passion here at PGT Innovations and a personal goal of mine. Our combined actions will create a legacy that inspires women to drive to become excellent leaders. I believe that if you have been successful, it is in part because someone helped lead you in the right direction. Now, you in turn will be able to lead others. I could not be more proud of our Leading Ladies.
