EVP, corporate affairs, Pfizer

By Kathy Calvin, president and CEO, United Nations Foundation

I am so honored to reflect on how my friend Sally Susman embodies the highest qualities of an influencer. A visit to her office is a tour through history — the pictures tell the story of her incredible network and formative experiences.

Sally is a leader who combines political savvy, personal integrity, and a commitment to meaningful impact.

She has endless curiosity and ability to learn from others while also being a great mentor and champion for her colleagues and Pfizer partners.

Through her deep and personal commitment, she has also made Pfizer a leader in bringing attention to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals — through a very public display on its corporate office windows, in its sustainability reports, and lifesaving vaccines for children around the world.

If I had to pick a bunker mate — who could also find a strategy and compelling argument to get us out of the bunker — it would be Sally.
