Ron O’Hanley

As CEO of State Street Global Advisors, Ron called on corporate boards to make gender diversity a priority to promote better decision-making and launched the Fearless Girl statue on Wall Street, which promptly became a global symbol of the need for more women in leadership. Under his own leadership, State Street introduced company-wide diversity goals tied directly to executive’s compensation, and were included on the Working Mother 100 Best Companies List as well as the Diversity Best Practices Inclusion Index. As well as being Executive Sponsor for State Street’s Black Professionals Group, Ron is also a member of the Boston Foundation Board of Directors: a prominent community foundation dedicated to diversity and inclusion. Ron has recently launched the Small Business Strong initiative, a partnership of leading businesses in Massachusetts with the aim of supporting women and minority-based businesses negatively affected by the COVID-19 associated economic downturn.
