Since 2017, Lou has served as Executive Sponsor of State Street’s Professional Women’s Network, an Employee Resource Group providing professional development opportunities for women across the company. He regularly encourages colleagues and peers to participate in the network’s events, as he strongly believes that networking and conversations are critical to help to foster a strong pipeline of female talent. As well as launching and continuing to lead the PWN’s Global Advisory Board, who advise on policies that drive diverse hiring and promotional practices, Lou has made a number of female leadership appointments at the Senior Vice President or Executive Vice President levels. In 2020, the firm reached 30% female representation across leadership roles, and approximately 68% of promotions at Manager Director level and above were women. PWN initiatives Lou helped with in 2020 included authoring a blog on ‘Allyship and Equal Pay Day for Black Women’ and hosting an event focused on Women in IT.
