I missed this April 2015 post from Broc Romanek picking up on the SEC's use of the social media tool Pinterest to collect various agency infographics, but the agency has found another interesting use for its Pinterest page. March was Women's History Month, and the SEC created a Women's History Month board on its Pinterest account to help gather information and celebrate the achievements of many of the most influential women employees in in its history.
The SEC's Women's History Month board features profiles of 13 women, ranging chronologically from Roberta Karmel, the first female SEC Commissioner (1977 to 1980), through current SEC Chair Mary Jo White, the third woman to serve as SEC Chair.
The 13 distinguished women featured by the SEC are:
Kathleen L. Casey: SEC Commissioner from 2006 to 2011.
Linda Fienberg: Worked at the SEC from 1979 to 1990 in roles including Executive Assistant to two Chairmen and Associate General Counsel in the General Counsel's Office.
Joan Fleming: 23 years of service, including as Assistant Regional Administrator of the Chicago Regional Office.
Cynthia A. Glassman: SEC Commissioner from 2002-2006 who also served as Acting Chairman during the summer of 2005.

Annette L. Nazareth: SEC Commissioner from 2005 to 2008.
Aulana Peters: SEC Commissioner from 1984 to 1988 (third woman and first African American to serve as an SEC Commissioner).
