We partnered with The Forum of Executive Women on the search for its first President & CEO. Founded in 1977, The Forum of Executive Women is the Greater Philadelphia Region’s premier women’s organization, actively working to bring together, and leverage the influence of, professional women to expand the impact and power of women in the workplace and beyond.
The search resulted in the recruitment of Meghan Pierce to the role.
A lifelong champion of women’s rights and gender equity, Pierce was most recently Executive Director of the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, where she was responsible for the management and operation of the nonprofit, nonpartisan organization with 2,500+ members statewide.
Prior, she provided strategic support and thought partnership for Kaplan Hecker & Fink LLP, one of New York’s premier litigation boutiques.
She also served as Policy Communications Advisor for the NYC Mayor’s Office for International Affairs.
Pierce earned a Master’s in Public Administration at the University of Pennsylvania Fels Institute for Government. While at Penn, she served in several fellowship roles at vital PA-based women’s organizations, including Planned Parenthood Pennsylvania Advocates, the Women’s Law Project of Pennsylvania, and Ritenhouse Political Partners.
