We would like to extend our sincerest congratulations to Jessica Gluck, who was recently selected for the 2018-2019 Patsy T. Mink Leadership Alliance cohort. Jessica serves as a Senior Tax Manager at A&B, and has been with the company since November 2017.

A&B supports our employees in their personal and professional development. In addition to the Patsy T. Mink Leadership Alliance program, other leadership programs in Hawaii include the Omidyar Fellows and Pacific Century Fellows. If you are interested in any of these programs, we encourage you to read through the program’s website and discuss this with your manager, department/business unit head, and/or Human Resources.

The Patsy T. Mink Leadership Alliance is the only program in Hawaii specifically designed to enable mid-career women to develop their leadership and management skills. The program began in 2016 and is run by the Patsy T. Mink Center for Business & Leadership at YWCA Oahu. The overarching goal is to increase the representation of women executives in Hawaii.

Jessica is a member of the third cohort of Mink Leaders. There are currently 35 Mink Leaders from previous years who represent a wide range of different industries, including banking, healthcare, technology, law, education, and the nonprofit sector.

Kevin Nishioka, vice president of tax and Jessica’s supervisor, said, “Jessica’s professional accomplishments and demonstrated leadership make her an ideal choice for this cohort of the Patsy T. Mink Leadership Alliance program. I am excited for her and look forward to what she will achieve during the coming months of the program.”

We are proud to have Jessica representing A&B in this prestigious program that supports the empowerment of women leaders. Congratulations, Jessica!
