The 2015 Women Leaders in Consulting


Over the last nine years, Consulting magazine has set out to measure the impact of women on the consulting profession. While it’s impossible to quantify, it’s significant and growing every year. Women continue to make a profound difference to both their clients and their firms. To recognize their achievements, we brought the profession together last month at the St. Regis New York to honor this year’s winners.

Nearly 200 industry leaders, executives, colleagues, clients and family members attended the 9th annual Women Leaders in Consulting Gala Awards Dinner. Deloitte Consulting’s Diane Davies was the recipient of a posthumous Lifetime Achievement Award. Consulting magazine congratulates all the winners and is proud to recognize them and their firms for their outstanding efforts.
