RADNOR, Pa., March 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) announced today that Allison Green, senior vice president and chief diversity officer, has been named to the 2013 list of the "25 Most Influential Black Women in Business" by The Network Journal (TNJ), a business magazine with an audience of predominantly African-American professionals, corporate executives and business owners.

"We're fortunate to have a dynamic leader like Allison Green taking our diversity and inclusion efforts to new levels," said Lisa Buckingham, executive vice president and chief human resources officer, brand and enterprise communications for Lincoln Financial Group. "Beyond her corporate success, though, she plays an active role as a mentor and advisor with several local nonprofit organizations, striving to help others—particularly youth—realize their true potential. She is very deserving of this award."

The annual award is open to black women who exude professionalism and who are committed to providing leadership in their community. A candidate must be nominated by another individual and should be a very senior executive with significant decision making authority in their organization.  TNJ's Awards Review Board makes the final selection.

"This year's honorees, including Allison Green, are a particularly special class, one that marks the 15 th consecutive year that we have presented these awards," said TNJ Publisher and CEO Aziz Gueye Adetimirin. "We are so proud of them, as we are proud of all of our past honorees, because they help our community to lift its head so much higher."

Since joining Lincoln Financial in 2009, Green has been responsible for the diversity and inclusion strategy, and the oversight of the company's practices in this area. She has nearly 20 years of corporate and management consulting experience, and previously served as corporate director of diversity for Wyeth Pharmaceuticals and The Vanguard Group. Green earned a B.A. in Psychology at Spelman College and an M.A. in Counseling Psychology at Howard University.
