100 Women We Love 2011

The 100 Women We Love – out artists, elected officials, business leaders, athletes, community activists – are role models for us all. Many are up-and-coming movers and shakers; some are at the zenith of their careers. Some of their achievements change our world and, just as importantly, others improve the world’s perception of out women. They all strive tirelessly to increase our visibility and continue our incredible progress toward equality and justice.

We proudly present the class of 2011, in random order, so each gets her well-deserved turn in the spotlight.

She serves on HP’s Global Diversity Advisory Board and HP’s LGBT PRIDE Executive Advisory Council, as well as Board President emeritus of Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, a non-profit organization dedicated to LGBT workplace equality. Bunch lives in Colorado with her partner of 14 years, their 10-year-old daughter and six-year-old twin sons. “As a mother of three young children,” Bunch says, “I feel a great responsibility to set a positive example and create a better future for my kids. I hope by being a visible role model for advancing social change and workplace equality, I can ultimately inspire them, as well as others, to dedicate themselves to finding and pursuing their own passions and purpose for driving positive change.” –SLO
