Honored for her experience helping mission-driven organizations accomplish impact through digital strategy, Molly Mattessich, Forum One’s Managing Director of Project Delivery, has been named to the Women We Admire list of Top 50 Women Leaders of Virginia.
Joining a powerhouse list of leaders in healthcare, financial services, engineering, education, and more, Women We Admire commended Mattessich among women creating lasting change and impact in the lives of other women:
“Mattessich brings over two decades of experience in operations and managing website development projects for the federal government and NGOs, on-the-ground experience in international development, and a history of directing digital communications efforts, to lead the experienced team of project managers at Forum One and deliver top-notch digital services to organizations who want to make a different world.”
