SAN ANTONIO, Nov. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Veronica Muzquiz Edwards, founder and CEO of InGenesis, has again been named one of the Global Power 100—Women in Staffing by Staffing Industry Analysts (SIA). This is the second consecutive year Edwards has been included in this roster which recognizes the significant contributions of 100 of the most influential women within the workforce solutions industry. "I am honored to receive this recognition and to be among an impressive group of industry leaders from around the world," said Edwards. "I hope our accomplishments inspire more women to break barriers and take on leadership roles in the staffing industry and other industries, as well. This recognition means we have a collective responsibility to influence positive changes in our industry, provide motivation, and remind women they have more opportunities at their reach." To that end, Edwards and InGenesis are committed to furthering woman and minority leadership through business internship and mentoring programs. Diversity inclusion is an essential part of building a stronger, more competitive business environment and contributing to the total health of our communities. Edwards was named U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC) National Hispanic Businesswoman of the Year, listed as one of the top 50 most influential Hispanic business leaders in the country, named to the roster of top 100 middle market CEOs, and selected as one of America's Top 10 Female Entrepreneurs.

According to the United Nations, women are significantly underrepresented in decision-making positions such as legislators, senior corporate executives and managers. Since 2015, SIA has issued its list of Global Power 100—Women in Staffing to honor women who have impacted the staffing world and whose leadership exemplifies their passion for building and producing talent.
