Honoring The She-Suite 100 Architects of Change

HONORING

Here at The She-Suite, our mission is to build a new model for the modern world of work for corporate women, empowering them to lead with their whole life™ in every facet of their lives. As we strive towards the development of an elevated new model for all women in the workplace, we are thrilled to partner with dynamic organizations that share our vision.

We acknowledge that we are only as successful as the visionary global partners we work with. Which is why we choose to celebrate the consistent, ground-breaking work of our collaborators committed to creating sustainable solutions towards overcoming the persistent gap with women at work – organizations and leaders that are true Architects of Change.

Specifically, we pay tribute to Boston Scientific and BAE Systems, Inc., as we’ve witnessed both of these organizations craft new models to create lasting change with their female leaders. These companies have each supported over 100 women through The She-Suite’s Brand Leadership Institute (BLI) Program!

“Boston Scientific and BAE Systems have crafted new models to address persistent gaps in the workplace and have delivered measurable outcomes in the areas of retention, readiness, advancement, and overall cultural transformation. It was my honor to present them with The She-Suite 100 Architects of Change award at this year’s She-Suite Summit23.” – Melissa Dawn Simpkins, President & CEO, Velvet Suite, and Founder, The She-Suite

Setting the example of what it looks like to be a leader for women, and what that new level of leadership looks like, are:

Camille Chang Gillmore,
VP Human Resources, Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Officer, Boston Scientific
Samuel Conaway,
President - U.S. Cardiology Sales, Chair-Close the Gap,
Boston Scientific
Dana Rixter,
Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, BAE Systems Inc.
Emily Mathias,
Manager, DEI Education & Inclusive Development, BAE Systems, Inc.

These extraordinary executives made the commitment to invest to vastly empower the women in their workplace, and have reaped the rewards. Samuel Conaway says investing in the BLI was a no-brainer for Boston Scientific, stating, “We doubled the female leaders in the company. We now have leaders at VP roles, Director of Sales roles, and Regional Manager roles really delivering results.” He adds that their female leaders have contributed immensely to the success of Boston Scientific over the last 10 years and the company’s future is very bright because of their work with BLI.

Dana Rixter shares that BAE Systems first engaged with The She-Suite because efforts to achieve objectives of increasing representation of women in leadership were stalling. She says, “It was clear to us that women were (and are) facing cultural barriers and unique challenges that needed to be specifically addressed.” She’s happy to report that they have seen tremendous progress from their BLI graduates. Retention rates have risen, promotion rates are high, and 100% of managers of BLI graduates have observed positive changes in their direct report’s skills, mindset, and confidence.

While the executives at Boston Scientific and BAE Systems, Inc. may be the Architects of Change, it is the Brand Leadership Institute graduates that shape the foundation of these successful organizations, cementing a relationship of mutual respect, success, and growth.

Please join us as we recognize and honor the achievements of these graduates for making history for women at work in The She-Suite 100 Hall of Fame.
