Nannette Stangle-Castor Wins HBA Leadership Award for Second Year in a Row
The LEAD (Leadership Excellence And Dedication) award recognizes one outstanding chapter member who has demonstrated excellence at a regional level, positively contributed to the chapter and its ongoing success, exemplified leadership excellence overall and demonstrated dedication to the HBA mission of furthering the advancement of women in healthcare worldwide. This is the second year in a row that Nannette has been selected as the LEAD award winner.
“Nannette is a powerhouse of energy, optimism, and creativity with a tenacious drive for excellence,” said Deborah Roth, Associate Dean for Clinical Research Administration, Duke University School of Medicine, and Chief Operating Officer, Duke Translational Medicine Institute. “At the same time, she exudes a sense of deep personal warmth and has played a key role in building relationships and a sense of community for our chapter. She also exudes a sense of passion for advancing the success of women leaders in healthcare.”
Nannette has been instrumental in developing several key initiatives designed to empower women to achieve their professional and personal leadership goals. This past year, Nannette spearheaded a robust social media initiative for the organization, providing training to HBA programming directors at the local and national level. She helped both the organization and individual members to more effectively engage, develop an authentic voice, and connect with thought leaders in their area of expertise. Nannette also continued her work to encourage, inspire, and train volunteers to build their capabilities and become strong leaders within the organization. In 2014, Nannette will take on a new leadership role within HBA, serving as president of the RTP chapter.
“I am so honored to receive this leadership award from my colleagues at HBA,” said Dr. Stangle-Castor. “They are an outstanding group of women with a strong passion for healthcare and a drive to make a difference in the world.”
