Biography

Nancy Sims is President and CEO of the Toigo Foundation, a national leadership program supporting underrepresented professionals within finance throughout the arc of their careers. Nancy brings nearly thirty years of service in the financial services industry to her leadership of the nonprofit, offering solutions-based engagement with organizations through programming and collaboration. Her entrepreneurial leadership style has advanced Toigo’s work from a small, grassroots organization to a high-impact partner extending its reach today to a broad mix of industries from business to media to government.

During Nancy’s twenty-year Toigo tenure, the organization has become a staunch advocate for diversity and inclusion, supporting thousands of young minority professionals as they reach positions of leadership, visibility and impact. Nancy’s work has influenced the Foundation’s coverage in business and industry publications, thought leadership and speaking engagements. In 2008, Nancy testified before the US House Financial Services Oversight Committee, reporting findings from the foundation’s Retention Returns Survey that highlighted the viewpoints of diverse professionals on inclusion practices within their employer organizations. She further initiated the 2017 release of Career Crossroads, a look at the optionality of today’s talent and how it translates to shifts in industries between finance and tech. She continues to be the voice for those the organization represents in her work to educate and inform the investment community on the merits of diversity and inclusion, the areas in need of further progress, and through the Foundation’s introduction of nearly 100 talented minority, high potential leaders each year to Finance.

In 2016, Nancy’s leadership in stewarding the challenges of the financial crisis of 2008 was chronicled in the Case Research Journal on women in leadership and is now a case study available for use in MBA and executive education classrooms. Nancy’s engagement across professions led to Toigo contributing a chapter, among noted academics, in the 2019 HBR published book entitled Race, Work and Leadership – New Perspectives on the Black Experience. The Foundation presented practical, real life examples of the often overlooked issues that face African American senior leaders in fulfilling their professional careers.
