Meet our two nominees: computer vision scientist Iris Fu and associate product manager Merrill Bajana. Both candidates have achieved massive success and demonstrated tremendous leadership skills throughout their time here, making them the perfect GumGummers to represent us.

The 2017 L.A. Business Journal Women’s Summit was held on June 23 at the JW Marriott at L.A. LIVE. Each year, the event brings together a collection of the city’s most successful business leaders for a day of inspiration, education and conversation. During panel discussions, speakers like the UCLA Anderson School of Management’s Dean Judy Olian will share their best practices for mentoring young talent, maintaining a healthy work-life balance and other key facets of career development.

The Summit concluded with an awards luncheon honoring the most exceptional women in the L.A. business community. While we didn’t make the finalists this year, we couldn’t be more proud of our two nominees and the fantastic job they do here every single day.
