In September, Sony Electronics was named to Working Mother magazine’s 2019 Working Mother 100 Best Companies list. The company was cited for its culture and workplace programs, as well as its benefits for parents. Concurrent to this distinction, Sony Electronics’ Theresa Alesso, who serves as the professional division’s president, was honored by the publication as Sony’s Working Mother of the Year.
Alesso’s professional responsibilities include oversight of Sony’s professional Imaging Products and Solutions business which develops and manufactures technologies that support broadcast media, healthcare, corporate and education, cinema, sports, entertainment and simulation applications, among others. She is the proud mother of two daughters, ages 11 and 13. These commitments have provided her with a clear understanding of the importance of work/life balance for herself and the organization, which you can read more about in Working Mother.
Alesso’s leadership, focus on business transformation, fresh approach, passion, industry expertise and forward-thinking tactics for work/life balance helped the organization select her for the commendation. She has notably mentored and championed women in technology, and helped to create and grow the company’s first female-focused videography community. She is an advocate for diversity and inclusion and uses her position and influence to inspire women leaders at all levels.
Working Mother Media’s mission is to serve as a champion of culture change and Working Mother magazine is the only national magazine for career-committed mothers. Alesso was recognized October 17 at Working Mother’s WorkBeyond Summit in New York City.
