Each year, MichBusiness honors women leaders who make significant contributions to their fields and the community. As CEO of Dawn Foods, Carrie Jones-Barber’s commitment to making Dawn a place where Team Members can thrive, build a career, and achieve their personal aspirations is just one reason she was selected as a 2021 Women Leadership in the Workplaces honoree. 

“I was incredibly honored when MichBusiness reached out to let me know their network of incredible women and business leaders had nominated me for this award,” said Jones-Barber. “To be recognized with so many strong and inspirational women leaders makes me grateful and proud. Leading Dawn as CEO, it’s important to me that we continue to cultivate a culture where we support the passion of our people, and our Team Members can learn, progress, and thrive. I thank the team at MichBusiness for this recognition and for all that they do to encourage women leaders.” 

Established in 1996, the MichBusiness awards honor women whose careers have reached exceptional levels of success and have elevated and encouraged women in the workplace.  

“With her efforts at helping others and making the world a better place, Carrie Jones-Barber exemplifies the kinds of qualities we find in all of our Women Thrive award winners,” said Jennifer Kluge, president and CEO of MichBusiness. “For 25 years, MichBusiness has been recognizing the awesome achievements of some of the state’s most amazing women. Carrie certainly is representative of that kind of talent.”
