Consulting Magazine Achievement Awards Honors Standout Women Leaders

Even though women make up just about a quarter of the consulting profession, their collective impact is exponentially larger. Every day, all across the consulting profession, women are breaking barriers and blazing trails. In recognition of their extraordinary efforts, Consulting magazine will recognize the Women Leaders in Consulting at a celebratory dinner and gala at the Plaza Hotel in New York, Nov. 10.

"As the publication of the profession, Consulting is honored to recognize the women leaders in the profession and the firms they represent," says Joe Kornik, Publisher & Editor in Chief of Consulting. "This is our fifth year recognizing the Women Leaders in Consulting, and the event always provides some very special moments. This year, we've received a record number of nominations, and the quality and accomplishments of the winners get more impressive every year."

Headlining the Consulting magazine Achievement Awards: Women Leaders in Consulting dinner is Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Nancy Killefer, a Senior Director with McKinsey & Company. Killefer joined the firm in 1979, leaving for three years to serve as both CFO and COO at the Department of the Treasury, before returning to McKinsey in 2000.

The night's nine other honorees represent the spectrum of consulting firms. They are:

  • Chell Smith, Ernst & Young, Leadership Award
