Sofia Teixeira ’94

Sofia Teixeira is a member of Steppingstone’s class of 1994 and earned admission to The Rivers School. After graduating from Rivers in 2000, Sofia received her B.S. in Business Management from Babson College in 2004 and a M.B.A. from Penn State in 2012.

She has worked in public relations, experiential marketing, and event planning agencies for a diverse collection of clients including VH1, Guitar Hero, and Procter & Gamble beauty brands.

Driven by her passion for diversity and inclusion, Sofia shifted into Human Resources in 2015 at the Kimberly-Clark Corporation as their Global Diversity Leader. She recently was recruited by John Hancock to be their first Head of U.S. Diversity & Inclusion, focusing on what she believes is a corporation’s most important asset: people.
