The AWL dates back to 1973, and anywhere from 40 to 70 honorees are inducted every year. New honorees are spotlighted in the “Salute Journal” and the New York Times.

Megan serves on the IMD Divisional COO Committee, the IMD New Products Committee, the IMD Business Practices Committee and the IMD Strategic Infrastructure Committee.  She also chairs the Private Wealth Management Risk Committee.

Megan is the senior female sponsor of the IMD Women’s Network, which provides career development, networking and training opportunities for women across the division. Megan is also IMD’s Summer Women’s and Diversity Champion,  assisting the division in the recruitment and retention of new analysts and associates.
