The prestigious award is given to 25 women who go above and beyond in the business and community sectors. Trailblazers across a variety of industries, including key executives and C-suite leaders at some of the nation’s and region's largest and fastest-growing organizations were highlighted for their achievements in the workplace and beyond.

Known for her servant leadership and community commitment, Barbarin is highly regarded by the area’s business community for her inspiring leadership style, strategic thinking, drive for results, passion for people and ability to select and develop leadership talent.

When asked about the best advice she would share with other up-and-coming female leaders, Barbarin offers this advice: “Tap into your authenticity early. Identify both mentors and sponsors within your industry and don’t restrict yourself to only female mentors/sponsors.”

She was recognized in 2020 by the Dallas Business Journal as an outstanding minority business leader and serves on the board of directors for the DFW Hospital Council, the Medical City Healthcare and HCA Healthcare Diversity and Inclusion Councils, and numerous community organizations.
