2017 Most Influential Women in Benefit Advising
In a largely male-dominated profession, EBA’s 2017 Most Influential Women in Benefit Advising stand out for both personal and professional reasons. Some of these winners, who are listed in alphabetical order by last name, were credited with finding substantial savings for employer clients and strengthening their organization’s bottom line.

Several showed bravery in the face of unspeakable obstacles or gave back to their local community. One woman runs a nonprofit dedicated to curing lung cancer. Many mentored female peers whom they encouraged to climb the corporate ladder.

The list, selected by EBA’s editors after a month-long online nomination process, is brimming with thought leaders who belong to various industry organizations. Some made their mark in media by contributing to books or popular news outlets. Others advocate a holistic approach to technology, behavioral finance, level-funding techniques, mind-body healing and metrics to track corporate objectives.
