04 Jan Shattering The Glass Ceiling
In honor of the countless women who achieved significant milestones in 2020, The Association of Junior Leagues International is launching a new social media campaign.
The series focuses on women who shattered the glass ceiling in 2020, are leaders who exemplify our organization’s values and who actively pave the way forward for young women and girls.
We begin our series with a celebration of Kathryn M. Farmer who, on January 1, 2021, became the first woman President and Chief Executive Officer of a Class I railroad in the 200-year old history of North American railroads. Farmer will also assume leadership of BNSF Railway’s Board of Directors. A member of the Junior League Fort Worth since 1998, we are proud that Kathryn is being recognized for her proven leadership at BNSF and in the Fort Worth community.
