GSBA CEO named 2013 Inspiring Woman

Louise Chernin among four honored by Seattle Storm

by Rachael Brister - Special to the SGN

The Seattle Storm has announced that Louise Chernin, president and CEO of the Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA), is a recipient of the Inspiring Women award for 2013. The other three honorees are Kaaren Andrews, a local educator and principal at Interagency Academy; Melissa Erickson, a former University of Washington basketball player; and Christine Gregoire, former governor of Washington. A celebration of the Inspiring Women honorees will be held at halftime of the August 15 Storm game versus Chicago.

'Once again, we have amazing women we are honoring in Kaaren, Louise, Melissa, and Chris,' said Karen Bryant, the Storm's president and CEO. 'Their experiences and successes are truly remarkable and we are glad to have the chance to celebrate them.'

Chernin has led GSBA to become what is now - the largest LGBT chamber in the United States, with more than 1,000 members. She was recently named by the Puget Sound Business Journal as one of the top 20 most influential women in the region.

'I work with remarkable people and live in a city and state in which there is such a strong commitment to equality for all,' said Chernin. 'The Seattle Storm has played an important role in our journey for equality by inspiring our youth, and most especially our young girls and women, to break down barriers, dream big, and be all they can be. Thank you, Seattle Storm, for this honor.'

These four influential women will be honored at halftime on Thursday, August 15, when the Seattle Storm takes on the Chicago Sky. Go to www.StormBasketball.com to get your tickets to this game and help recognize four inspirational women from our community.

The Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA) is this region's LGBT and Allied Chamber of Commerce, proudly serving the business and nonprofit community since 1981. GSBA is the largest LGBT chamber in the United States with over 1,000 members. More than a chamber, GSBA is a vibrant community organization with a broad and diverse membership base. GSBA is widely known throughout the Puget Sound region for its work on business development, connecting community through business, advocacy on both civil rights and business, and promoting LGBT tourism through its Travel Gay Seattle tourism initiative. In addition, GSBA invests in the next generation of leaders by sponsoring a Scholarship Fund, which has given out over $1.8 million in scholarships to undergraduates in Washington State since 1990. GSBA's mission is to combine business development, social action, and leadership to expand economic opportunities for the LGBT community and those who support equality for all.
