2015 Executive Women in Texas Government’s Woman of the Year Awardee…

Deborah Shaw-Boatner!

At the EWTG Annual Conference in November, the Woman of The Year was awarded to Deborah Shaw-Boatner.  In honoring Deborah this year, we celebrate her 40 years of achievement and community service.

Deborah started her career as an Auditor at the State Comptroller’s Office. Over the next 37 years she has served in key positions for various state agencies in public accounting, auditing and management including: the former State Treasury, the Texas Rehabilitation Commission, the Office of the Attorney General, and the Texas Lottery Commission before returning once more to the State Comptroller’s Office from where she retired as a Training Coordinator and Requirements Analyst.

Since Deborah first joined EWTG in 1988, she has participated in a variety of committees fostering Education, Membership, Mini-Courses, Sponsorship Development, Scholarships, and the Annual Conferences. She has held board positions as Secretary, Treasurer, Financial Officer, and currently serves as Membership Director.

In 2015, Deborah spearheaded the creation of “EWTG membership moment”, a President’s Reception, and a Capitol Reception. Her membership drive promotions and events have encouraged more member and guest participation, resulting in a 51% increase in membership over the previous year. She also enjoys the benefits of being part of an Executive Success Team and acts as a mentor to new EWTG members.

Outside of EWTG, Deborah is active on other boards for the Austin Delta Foundation, the Greater Austin YWCA, and the Black American Comptrollers Employees Association consistently demonstrating her support of advancing the personal and professional development of women.

Volunteerism has always been a top priority to Deborah, serving organizations such as the Women’s Advocacy Project, Mount Olive Food Pantry, Safe Place, Meals on Wheels, raising funds for Katrina, Cancer Awareness. In addition, Deborah loves mentoring youth at Sims Elementary School in Austin and was recognized by the Austin Partners in Education Program for her volunteer efforts.  

 Please join us again as we congratulate Deborah Shaw-Boatner as 2015 EWTG Woman of the Year.
