With a focus on Social and Community Impact, she has expertise in talent development, diversity, equity & inclusion, corporate responsibility and ESG/sustainability. Her greatest passion is helping organizations build and develop initiatives that best position them for long-term success in a diverse, global environment.

Her commitment to change and cultural impact has allowed her work to be featured in several publications and conferences including Forbes, The Hill, The Muse, Milken Institute and Sustainable Brands.

Patsy’s impact and success are rooted in more than 25 years of experience building and leading functions for organizations in the financial services, data, media and non-profit arenas.

Prior to this, she served as CEO of The Association of Junior Leagues International, Inc. and as global head of Diversity and Inclusion at Credit Suisse, respectively.  Before assuming this position, she was responsible for building and leading Thomson Reuters’ diversity and inclusion, corporate responsibility and ESG/sustainability functions. In this capacity, she successfully launched the ESG Institute, a cutting-edge resource and support center tasked with building awareness and understanding around Social Impact issues and metrics. She is also a brand ambassador frequently speaking on talent management and social impact, as well as an Adjunct Professor of DEI at Fordham University.

Additionally, Patsy has served on several boards and committees that align with both her business and personal passions (inclusion and education), including Marymount School of New York, Women’s World Banking, the Jackie Robinson Foundation, All in Together, Multiplying Good and the Queens Museum.
