For the second consecutive year, Georgia-Pacific will recognize women who prove that StrengthHasNoGender, their initiative to showcase the accomplishments of exceptional women. Four women will be featured on limited edition packaging. In addition, the company will release a series of short films at Brawny.com where each of the four women talk about their personal and professional challenges in the pursuit of their dreams.
The four women include:
- Vernice Armour – first African-American female combat pilot in the U.S. and first African-American female pilot in the U.S. Marine Corps
- Dr. Anna Kornbrot – oral surgeon who was the first woman to graduate from Columbia College
- Patty Lopez, Ph.D. – engineer at Intel who has released more than 50 products in her career and holds seven imaging patents
- Brittany Wenger – first place winner in the 2012 Google Science Fair who developed an app for breast cancer diagnosis testing
