RingCentral, Inc., a leading provider of cloud communications and collaboration solutions, today announced that Ritu Mukherjee, Associate Vice President of Product Management at RingCentral, is among an exceptional group of women selected for the prestigious YWCA Silicon Valley Tribute to Women Award. Mukherjee is one of 39 women who will be honored at the awards ceremony and dinner in May.
This year marks the 32nd anniversary of YWCA Silicon Valley and local employers coming together to honor outstanding executive women in an event that reflects YWCA’s mission of empowering women and eliminating racism. The YWCA has honored more than 1,200 executive women over the years and has recognized more than 400 organizations in a variety of fields including technology, healthcare, biotechnology, education, law, real estate, human services and financial sectors. The organizations range in size as well as structure and all share the same principle of valuing executive women and the unique perspective they bring to their employers and to their community.
Kira Makagon, who serves as Executive Vice President of Innovation at RingCentral, nominated Mukherjee for this honor. “Ritu is passionate about continually making a positive impact at RingCentral through her strong work ethic and leadership by example,” says Makagon. “Her commitment to making a difference across both the organization and in the broader community is commendable. We are thrilled to call Ritu our colleague and congratulate her on receiving this esteemed honor from the YWCA Silicon Valley.”
