Boise State University President Marlene Tromp was recognized for her leadership in education at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival Women’s Leadership Celebration on Jan. 30 in Salt Lake City.
Tromp, who became the first woman president of Boise State last year, was among six college and university presidents in Idaho and Utah honored for their impact on higher education.
“We’re pleased to honor six college presidents who are exemplary leaders in their own right, and who are collectively shaping the future of our region,” said Scott Anderson, Zions Bank President and CEO.
Additionally, two international leaders were recognized for their global impact. María Fernanda Espinosa, President of the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly, received a global leadership award for promoting inclusive and sustainable cities and communities throughout the world. Baroness Emma Nicholson of Winterbourne, a member of British parliament, was recognized for her humanitarian leadership and the work of her AMAR Foundation, which has helped thousands of displaced people in the Middle East.
This is the seventh year that Zions Bank and Sundance Institute have hosted the event focused on women leaders. Zions Bank hosts the event as part of its mission to support women who are making a difference in their communities and beyond.
