In 2010, she became the first woman elected to lead SEIU. Mary Kay Henry, a fierce leader and organizer in the labor movement, continues today to advocate and win protections for workers, including personal protective equipment, hazard pay, and sick leave for those on the frontline during the COVID pandemic.
