Make Your Mark Awards

Watermark Make Your Mark Awards
Collective Power and Perserverance 


Wow! What a wonderful evening! Our Nov. 10, 2016, Watermark Make Your Mark Awards signature event was another rousing success. Congratulations to our winners:

  • Lauren Diehl of Oracle: Connection Award
  • Ana Corrales of Google / Nest: Development Award
  • Susan Lovegren of AppDynamics: Advocacy Award
  • Intuit: Impact Award
  • Gordy Davidson of Fenwick & West: Bill Campbell (Man Who Gets It) Award
  • Bindu Garapaty of Juniper Networks: Watermark Emerging Executive of the Year
  • Julie Brush of Solutus Legal Search: Watermark Senior Executive of the Year

And how wonderful to have Jennifer Siebel Newsom of The Representation Project as our keynote. Her call to push forward in the face of adversity served as a common thread throughout the evening.

During a night of impassioned speeches, awards, fundraising and our Watermark Online Auction Extravaganza,  perhaps these words by Julie Brush captured the spirit of Watermark, and our Make Your Mark Awards, best:

“We live in a world where disruption seems to be everywhere. Some of which is essential…and good. Some of which is destructive to our world, ourselves and our relationships with one another. And in the midst of this disruption are people and organizations that inspire and lead the way towards making the right kind of difference. Since its inception, Watermark has been such an organization. Its impact on our community of women and the professional world has been profound, consistent...and lasting.” – Julie Brush, Winner, Watermark Senior Executive of the Year
