Fallon Health celebrates Women’s History Month

Worcester, Massachusetts, March 30, 2023 – Fallon Health is pleased to celebrate Women’s History Month and the many contributions and achievements of the women throughout history who have played a vital role in shaping the world.

Today, more than 80% of Fallon Health’s approximately 1,200 employees are women. The organization touts approximately 165 female leaders (managers and above), five women who help make up Fallon Health’s executive team and another four women who sit on its board of directors. Each one positively contributing to the organization’s success in supporting the diverse and changing needs of those it serves.

“At Fallon Health, leadership is not defined by gender. We put confidence in the individual with the strongest ability to encourage others to reach their potential,” said Jill Green Lebow, SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer for Fallon Health. “The women of Fallon Health are truly an unstoppable force, and we are proud to work with so many dedicated, intelligent and forward-thinking individuals.”

Led by Fallon Health’s Council for Cultural Competence— a group of employees dedicated to helping employees better serve people of varying cultures, ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, abilities, and ethnicities— the organization is pleased to spotlight some of the extraordinary women who are making a meaningful difference at Fallon Health, and in turn, the communities, and members it serves.

  • Beth CreavinBeth Creavin serves as Vice President-Corporate Controller & Treasurer for Fallon Health. With more than 30 years’ experience in managing people, she prides herself on her ability to listen and desire to empower others around her. Beth believes the best way to support other women and enable them to succeed is to share personal experiences and insights.

    “Be honest about your success and struggles. I was once given some good advice that I continue to share today—you can have it all, but not at the same time. Make sure you delegate both in your professional and personal life.”
  • Armine Hovhannissian Armine Hovhannissian is the Senior Director of Fallon Health’s Enterprise Project Management Office. For her, leadership is not about the title but about people and how we can inspire, empower, and influence others in a positive way and create an all-inclusive environment for growth, engagement, and a sense of belonging. Originally from Armenia, Armine co-founded an online women’s group to serve as a support system and networking vehicle to support other women, especially those who share a similar path of an immigrant.

    “Every phase of life will require a different version of yourself. I always encourage women to reach out to other women in their own circle of friends, colleagues at work, and women they know in their community they feel inspired by, and to learn more about their career path and how they navigated through challenges and the journey to success. Asking for help is a strength not a weakness. And there’s certainly enough room for all of us to succeed."
  • Harini Murthy Harini Murthy is Director of Medical Economics and Analytics for Fallon Health and has been with the organization for more than 20 years. A native of India, Harini’s story has been shaped by her family members including the strong women who raised her and her father who was working in Kuwait during the Iraqi invasion in 1990. She believes that women cannot let the fear of failure hold them back and shares her personal experiences—including adjusting to a new home here in the United States— to pave the way for future generations, and especially for her own daughters.

    “Do not be afraid to take risks, embrace the opportunities to step out of your comfort zone. Start investing in yourself early and build strong positive relationships. Believe in and be true to yourself.”
