Verna Griffin-Tabor — Editors’ Pick: Legacy in Advocacy. When Verna Griffin-Tabor announced her planned retirement earlier this year after a quarter-century at Center for Community Solutions, it was headline-making in the arena of advocacy, intervention, and prevention of sexual assault and relationship violence in San Diego and beyond. As CEO of the agency that serves women numbering in the tens of thousands annually, she has been a respected voice in the community who is equally known for her deeply informed, approachable, and hopeful presence despite the gravity of her life’s work. Her unwavering commitment to not only addressing need but also prevention has garnered accolades in the San Diego community and made her a benchmark in her field. ccssd.org  Deanna Murphy

San Diego Zoo — Editors’ Pick: Female-Driven Team When we toured the Zoo’s new Wildlife Explorers Basecamp earlier this year, something struck us. In addition to a shared passion for creating healthy environments for the Zoo’s collection to inspire future generations in the care and conservation of the world’s creatures, the curators have something else in common: they are all women. Then, in April, Erika Kohler was named Executive Director of the San Diego Zoo, only the second woman in the Zoo’s 106-year history to hold the title. Together, these incredible women are working to advance the Zoo’s mission to save species and educate us so we learn to love and care about all things, from the cute and fuzzy to the slimy and slippery, and yes, even spiders. sdzwa.org  Deanna Murphy
