On Thursday, Customer Contact Centers VP Sharon Grant was honored as one of the Top 15 Business Women in Illinois at the eighth annual Illinois Women’s Conference, an event focusing on professional development, community, networking, entrepreneurship and women’s health.

“I am humbled to represent United in this special way,” said Sharon. “I value the recognition as a reflection of United’s strong commitment to developing women leaders and being active in communities we serve.”

The award recognizes high-ranking female executives in various industries in Illinois that exhibit the tenacity it takes to excel in their field of expertise. Other award recipients included Hickory Farms CEO Diane Pearse and Grubhub Senior Vice President Kelley Berlin.

This year, the annual conference coincides with Women’s History Month, during which we recognize and honor the contributions women have made throughout history and to society.

“I am so proud that we are celebrating the impact and achievements of women in our society during Women’s History Month,” said Sharon. “I’m overjoyed to be recognized and even more so to celebrate all the trailblazers who paved the way for me to have the opportunity to do what I love every day.”
