OAKLAND, Calif., April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Working Mother magazine has named Janet Liang, president of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii, as one of their 30 "Working Mothers of the Year." Liang is the only honoree from Hawaii. This award is presented annually to extraordinary moms who adeptly balance career, motherhood and self-development with grace and determination.

"We are extremely pleased that Janet Liang was chosen as national Working Mother of the Year because of the inspirational example she sets every day for all working parents," said Bernard Tyson, executive vice president for Health Plan and Hospital Operations for Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc. and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals. "Through the support of her family and Kaiser Permanente, she doesn't have to choose between putting her family's health and well-being first, while thriving in her career at Kaiser Permanente. She can do both."

Liang is in good company. This year's winners include a teacher, several high-powered executives, human resource and information technology professionals, a scientist, a banker, a psychologist and even the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama.

"Working moms live complex, rich lives and are at the ready even in times of economic duress, when family dynamics shift and unexpected challenges arise," said Suzanne Riss, editor in chief, Working Mother. "Today, we are pleased to honor 30 remarkable women for Working Mother magazine's 30th birthday. In reading their stories and getting to know them, we are humbled by their accomplishments, impressed by their resourcefulness and touched by their devotion to their families and communities."

Liang became president of Kaiser Permanente Hawaii in 2007. Her achievements include numerous process improvement efforts and clinical advancements. Prior to joining Kaiser Permanente, Liang had a 14-year career with Group Health Cooperative, a Seattle-based health maintenance organization.

Liang has two daughters, ages 7 and 5, and is an active supporter of children's services and at-risk youth programs. Liang has served on a number of boards for social service agencies. She is a member of the Hawaii Business Roundtable, Healthcare Executive Study Society, Presidents Organization - Hawaii Chapter, board director for Kaiser Permanente Insurance Company, Inc., and trustee on the Le Jardin Academy Board of Trustees, where her daughters attend school.

Liang graduated cum laude from Boston University with a bachelor's degree in political science. She earned her master's degree in health administration from the University of Washington.

Working Mother's Working Mothers of the Year were nominated by their spouses, employers, children and friends and selected by the Working Mother editorial team.
