Nancy Wisniewski

Nancy has been the Chair of Standard Chartered Bank’s Gender Engagement Network (GEN) in the Americas for the last five years. When she took over the leadership of the network, she successfully spearheaded the effort to change its name from ‘Women’s Initiative Network (WIN)’ to the ‘Gender Engagement Network’, recognising the imperative to include men in the conversation. The rebranding in the Americas region led to a swift tripling of membership over the course of the first six months. Nancy campaigned for the network’s UK counterparts to do the same, which has also resulted in significant growth! In 2018, GEN undertook over 45 events, both internal and client-focused, with activities including a client recognition award in honour of International Women’s Day, a movie screening of and conversations around RBG, a Meet and Eat series with senior management, creation of Lean In Circles, and a number of career building and networking workshops. GEN also led the charge to have Standard Chartered publish an Influencer Statement for International Women’s Day 2019 in support of #BalanceforBetter. Nancy also ensures that graduate recruitment has ample female representation through participation in the steering committee. Externally, Nancy is an active member of the Wall Street Women’s Alliance Governance Board and participates in a number of formal and informal mentoring relationships with women covering different aspects of their career within Standard Chartered, plus involvement in many other efforts to drive gender equality.
