Two female Cummins executives have won awards for their leadership.

The Indianapolis Business Journal recognized Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Marya Rose as its 2015 Women of Influence. The honor is given to women who demonstrate excellence in the public and private sector in their careers and communities.

At Cummins, Rose helped launch the company's Unified Communications & Collaboration program that ties all Cummins’ communications capabilities into one platform, promoting innovation and improving work productivity by empowering employees. She is also a chairwoman of the Indiana and Kentucky chapter of Planned Parenthood and a leader of the Corporate Local Diversity Council, where she focuses on promoting visible and invisible diversity at Cummins.

Sharon Barner, Cummins' vice president and general counsel, received the Pamela L. Carter Award for Transformative Leadership on Oct. 28 at the Leadership Awards Dinner in Washington, D.C. The award is given to those who have demonstrated commitment to advancing the empowerment of women in corporate law.

Barner, a legal professional, joined Cummins in 2012 to streamline the company's legal team and is in the process of reducing outside legal teams from 150 to 25 members. She is also a mentor for six women and men at various stages of their careers, both inside and outside Cummins.

Cummins officials praised the executives, saying that "both empower diversity and inclusion in their work, and confirm that with perseverance and hard work, anything is possible."
