2007 Woman of the Year


With an extensive career, from becoming the first female Navy chief operating officer to the first chief operating officer of the entire city of San Diego, Ronne has improved San Diego’s infrastructure and community as a whole. We rely on her as a role model––not just as a powerful woman, but as an influential presence in our community. Aside from her impressive career, Ronne has paved a lasting change for women in the working world, striving for women’s rights and championing this cause in her daily work. Ronne has demonstrated a wholehearted commitment to her organizations, commitment to the city, and commitment to all of us.

Thank You to all the influential women who showed their support at our second annual Women Who Move the City event and thanks to the San Diego Museum of Art for hosting this celebration.
