CTN CEO, Dr. Maria Chavez, was named by Women We Admire as one of The Top 50 Women Leaders of Connecticut for 2023. Connecticut has grown considerably in the last few decades and much of its success can be attributed to its women leaders in the workforce. This year’s awardees are key contributors to their organizations, driving change and innovation that will resonate for years to come.

Dr. Maria Martha Chavez-Brummel is driven by a social mission and a desire to find innovative ways to solve social problems that have challenged the market or the public sector. Education has been at the core of her efforts ranging from kindergarten to higher education.

Dr. Chavez is a former Assistant Dean of Yale College and a faculty member. At Yale, she founded the Asian Chicano Native American Cultural Center and the Chicano Boricua Studies.
