Our Keynote Speaker

Cynt Marshall, CEO Dallas Mavericks

The evening will feature Cynthia (Cynt) Marshall, the inspiring CEO of the Dallas Mavericks who has transformed the culture of the Mavericks organization while also being an influential leader in the North Texas community. Author of “You’ve Been Chosen: Thriving Through the Unexpected”, Cynt is an uplifting and motivating speaker who is a testament to the motto “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.

Cynt Marshall is currently Chief Executive Officer of the Dallas Mavericks, the first Black female CEO in the history of the National Basketball Association. In this role, Cynt has been a dynamic force for inclusion and diversity, just as she was during her 36-year career at AT&T. Her work at AT&T as SVP for HR, for example, landed AT&T in the top 3 on Diversity Inc’s 2017 Top 50 list of companies and, for the first time, placed AT&T on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list in 2017 (one of only two Fortune 50 companies).

Widely recognized for her visionary leadership, Cynt is the recipient of numerous honors and awards. In 2021, Forbes considered Cynt as one of “15 of the World’s Most Inspiring Female Leaders”. Other recognitions include Adweek’s 30 Most Powerful Women in Sports; the Girl Scouts of America Lifetime Achievement award; Women of Power Legacy Award by Black Enterprise; National ATHENA® Leadership Program Award; The Network Journal’s 25 Most Influential Women in Business; “50 Most Powerful Women in Corporate America” by Black Enterprise magazine; Ebony magazine’s “Power 100” list; Leadership North Carolina Governor’s Award for lifetime achievements.

Cynt graduated from the University of California-Berkeley with degrees in Business Administration and Human Resources Management and holds four honorary Doctorate degrees. She has chaired a variety of non-profit boards and is currently on the board of Dallas CASA, Dallas Regional Chamber, Texas Women’s Foundation, Texas 2036, T.D. Jakes Foundation, and a member of the Executive Leadership Council (ELC). She is also on the Board of Directors of BGSF Staffing and Blinktbi, Inc.
