Carly Fiorina (R), the former chief executive officer of Hewlett-Packard, announced in May 2015 that she was running for president and seeking the Republican nomination.

Fiorina made the announcement on ABC's Good Morning America, becoming the first Republican woman on the presidential ballot for 2016.

According to Fiorina's campaign website, she currently serves as “the chairman of the American Conservative Union Foundation; chairman of Good360, the world's largest product philanthropy organization; and chairman of Opportunity International, the largest non-profit micro-finance lender in the world.”

Fiorina was also an adviser to Sen. John McCain (R, AZ) during his 2008 presidential run and made an unsuccessful U.S. Senate run in 2010.

Fiorina served as CEO of Hewlett-Packard from July 1999 until February 2005, becoming the first woman to lead a Fortune 500 company, her website states.

According to her website, Fiorina also launched the Unlocking Potential Project in 2014.

Dubbed “The UP Project,” the political action committee “aimed at engaging women voters and refuting the false notion that conservative ideas and principles amount to a ‘war on women.'”
