Congratulations to the winner of our Advocacy Award, Olga Mack, General Counsel, ClearSlide.

Olga is a powerhouse: a startup advisor, nationally recognized author, public speaker, award-winning general counsel, women’s advocate and entrepreneur.

Along with her role at ClearSlide, Olga founded the Women Serve on Boards movement. This initiative has helped increase the number of women serving on the boards of Land O’Lakes, Discovery Communications and other Fortune 500 companies.

Olga is a Watermark member, adjunct professor at the University of California-Berkeley School of Law and a TEDxEmeraldGlenPark organizer. She serves on numerous boards and advisory boards.

Her Greatest Passion
"I founded Women Serve on Boards because I don’t want to wait another 100 years to see parity in the boardroom. Achieving parity isn’t an astronomical event that requires the stars to align perfectly. If we act now and work together, we can get there much, much sooner."

Her Personal Hero
"My parents. They taught me how to take calculated risks and realize that our limitations are entirely self-imposed. They also taught me that becoming a diluted version of yourself is a tragic loss for everyone."

Well done, and congratulations, Olga!
