Welcome Network USA's New Board Officers
UN Global Compact Network USA proudly welcomes our new slate of board officers. Daniella Foster of Bayer was elected the new Board Chair; Ann Tracy of Colgate-Palmolive was named Board Secretary; and Shobha Meera of Capgemini stepped in as interim Treasurer. They will join Gayle Schueller of 3M, the Vice Chair, on the executive committee.
Foster, an executive board member and senior vice president, and global head of public affairs, science, sustainability, and consumer health at Bayer, is in her sixth year of service to the Network USA board. She had previously served for two years as the board Secretary.
"I'm honored to be elected as the chair of Network USA and look forward to working with the entire board to advance the organization's growth," said Foster. "As one of the largest UNGC networks in the world, we have a great opportunity to help even more US companies embody and lean into the principles of the Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals."
Tracy is the chief sustainability officer at Colgate-Palmolive and is in her third year on the Network USA board. Meera is Capgemini's chief corporate social responsibility officer and has served on the board for two years.
"I'm confident that Ann will do a great job in her new role as Secretary, and I thank Shobha for stepping up to fill the Treasurer's position," said Foster.
Network USA currently has more than 900 signatory participants and works with them to identify sustainability challenges and opportunities, provide practical guidance, and promote action to support broader UN goals. In addition, it works closely with the UN Global Compact Office to ensure that its members have access to all programs and learning tools to help them progress against the Ten Principles and SDGs.
