Welcome to Groundbreakers­—Toigo’s first annual women in leadership summit— underscoring the Foundation’s commitment to foster advancement among women leaders. The energy for Groundbreakers is fueled by our recognition of our Founder, Sue Toigo, whose groundbreaking efforts over the past 25 years to passionately advocate for the academic and career aspirations of thousands of young minority men and women has exponentially benefitted the finance industry through the brilliance of those individuals who carry the distinction of Toigo Fellow. Some of those wonderful, new generation leaders will be featured in today’s program.

Our program focuses on personal achievement and results. We are honored to feature an impressive roster of prominent groundbreakers­—women from industry, government and philanthropic ventures who will share stories of leadership, learning and life. The combination of interactive sessions, thought-provoking speakers and panels has been designed to enhance your insights and challenge your thinking. For 20+ years, the Toigo Foundation has helped bring greater diversity into the finance industry and areas of business that control the flow of capital. Our Groundbreakers Summit is building on that experience to foster conversations and connections that transcend industry lines—an important element of leadership in today’s environment. With women leaders—and those on their way—in the room, we encourage open sharing of knowledge.Throughout the day we will explore important steps to drive change and open doors to new connections, opportunities for mentoring and sponsorship and expansion of your leadership profile. On behalf of the Toigo team and our Board of Directors, I thank you for being a part of the 2011 Groundbreakers Summit.

8:30 am – 8:35 am

Welcome | Nancy Sims, President & CEO | Toigo Foundation

8:35 – 8:50 am Introduction | Women—The Engine of the New Economy Kelly Williams, Managing Director, Head of Customized Fund Investment Group | Credit Suisse Groundbreakers | Pioneer of Progress

Keynote | Rosa “Rosie” Rios, Treasurer of the United States It’s Rios’ signature on your currency—and her leadership and drive that is expanding greater access to capital for womenrun businesses across the country. Her background in public service (in DC and Alameda County) and with a top real estate investment firm provides Rios with an invaluable perspective. 8:50 am – 10:45 am Introduction | Women in the Lead Lisa Rickert, Director | The Clinton Global Initiative International Lisa Rickert came to the William J. Clinton Foundation in the spring of 2005, serving as an integral member of a task force focused on exploring the issues of water and sanitation in the developing world. She continued this work as a senior member of the team that launched the Clinton Hunter Development Initiative in Malawi in 2006. Charlotte Relyea, Principal | McKinsey & Co. When senior leaders commit themselves to gender diversity, they really mean it—but still, deeply entrenched beliefs can cause old behaviors to resurface. McKinsey’s research shows executives perceive women as a greater risk for senior positions, yet they do little to improve “the odds” for success. Relyea will lead a discussion of how this cycle must change. Raudline Etienne, Toigo Alumna | UC Berkeley Haas School of Business, Class of 1994 Senior Director | Albright Stonebridge Group | Groundbreakers | Pioneer of Progress Recognizing the difference between respect and response is just the first step in building a professional network. Etienne will share insights into the challenges—and rewards—of building a trusted network. We’ll hear her approach, and the lessons she has learned along the way. Jacqueline Novogratz, Founder & CEO | Acumen Fund Jacqueline Novogratz and her team at the Acumen Fund have approved over $70 million of investments in 65 companies that have touched 86 million lives. Her inspiring stories of work in Africa as a consultant for the World Bank and for UNICEF, and founding Duterimbere, Rwanda’s first microfinance institution showcase how one person with determination can make a difference. She will spark ideas and inspiration for us all. 9:55 am – 10:45 am
