As BCG’s Global People Senior Director from 2013 through 2018, Frances spearheaded an agenda that included the Women@BCG program, work sustainability, and engagement topics. She developed priorities and set, implemented, and tracked BCG’s HR strategy across more than 90 offices around the world. As a result, the number of women partners at the firm increased at three times the rate of male partners, while men and women were both retained at the same rate. Frances was recently promoted to Partner, and is using experiences from the US and Saudi Arabia to Germany and Latin America to collaborate with clients in the People & Organization practice to refine D&I strategies. Frances regularly presents BCG’s gender diversity research on the firm’s recruiting, retention, and advancement rates for women at the firm’s women’s conferences, annual partner meetings, and client meetings, as well as to BCG’s Executive and Operating Committees. She has also co-authored numerous articles for the press focused on D&I research and initiatives. Externally, Frances has worked with clients around the world in driving an increase in their diversity & inclusion (from Saudi Arabia, to Latin America to the US) and has presented workshops and shared BCG’s research at TEDWomen, MassChallenge, the International Bar Association, and G-7 events. She also works with women in business schools at various universities, sponsoring or mentoring them and sharing knowledge and research.
