"Innovation is at the heart and soul of everything we do at Motorola. We believe that our business, and our nation's, future depend on it. As a woman with a passion for probing how technology can impact our world, I am eager to share that passion with future women business leaders and innovators. The Global Marathon offers young women a glimpse into some exciting career paths they might not have considered and gives them the chance to encourage and learn from one another. It's also a great opportunity for them to see how other women have excelled in engineering or technology-related fields."
Leslie Jones, 2009 and 2010 Global Marathon Honorary Chair Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, Motorola, Inc.
