Urban League Honors "Woman Of Power"

Columbus, OH -- Gale King, executive vice president and chief human resource officer for Nationwide, is a National Urban League "Woman of Power". She accepted her award at a special luncheon tribute during the National Urban League conference in Washington, DC.

"As a member of my executive cabinet, Gale demonstrates her passion for the company and a commitment to every associate. She helps others reach their professional and personal goals by mentoring others, and by developing policies and practices that provide opportunities for all," said Steve Rasmussen, CEO of Nationwide.

The National Urban League's "Woman of Power" award honors women for outstanding leadership in the arts, government affairs, politics, technology, corporate, community service, and more. In addition to King, this year's honorees include the following:

* Laila Ali – Professional boxer, actress and daughter of Muhammad Ali
* Angela Bassett – Actress of stage and screen
* Roslyn K. Brock – Chairman, NAACP
* Melanie Campbell – President/CEO, National Coalition of Black Civic Participation
* Angela Conyers-Benton – Founder, Black Web 2.0
* Dr. Beverly Mitchell-Brooks – President/CEO, Urban League of Greater Dallas and North Central Texas
* Ambassador Susan E. Rice – U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations

"It humbles me to receive this honor from the National Urban League, and it inspires me to do more as I join such an exceptional group of women for this recognition," said King. "The National Urban League challenges us all to work for the empowerment of all people, and has been doing so for the past 100 years. I am proud to receive this award, particularly as we celebrate the centennial year of the Urban League movement."
