PAM IORIO

PRESIDENT & CEO, BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF AMERICA, TAMPA

Iorio’s organization pairs young people with mentors. Iorio, a former mayor of Tampa, moved the organization’s headquarters to Tampa after taking the CEO’s job in 2014. “I have been proud of the way Big Brothers Big Sisters has addressed issues of diversity, equity and inclusion,” she says. “We have challenged ourselves to look inward as an organization that serves youth who often face adversity in many forms. We have pledged to be an organization that is part of the community, not one that goes into a community.”
