Candace Quinn is Co-Founder/Co-President of the Women’s Executive Circle of New York (WECNY), a not-for-profit organization with the mission of accelerating the advancement of Women from diverse backgrounds to executive positions of leadership. WECNY creates a platform that brings together corporate executives in an environment that fosters career development and encourages gender equality. WECNY has collaborated with Cornell University’s Institute for Women and Work to help improve the standing of women in business leadership positions. Together, WECNY and Cornell University’s Institute for Women and Work conducted a quantitative research study that evaluates the state of women represented in executive positions in the top 100 public companies headquartered in NY.

WECNY has also partnered with Columbia Graduate Business School to improve the standing of women in business leadership positions. Columbia University and WECNY continued the quantitative research, begun by Cornell University and WECNY, on the top 100 public companies headquartered in New York State, analyzing the progress of women’s representation on Boards of Directors and in chief executive positions. The results of their research were published in an annual report, and presented at their annual corporate sponsored event. The WECNY and Columbia University continue to conduct comparative research that will be released annually at their events.

WECNY is an IRC 501 (c) (6) organization. Corporate sponsors of WECNY include Morgan Stanley, Smith Barney, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, and KPMG.

** Candace is currently transitioning the Mazar’s Executive Compensation and Benefits practice, which she developed for the firm, to a law firm. The increasing need for legal specific work in executive compensation and employee benefits needed by Mazars’ partners in the US and globally has prompted the firm’s desire to make this transition. Mazars is a public accounting firm and is prohibited, by Sarbanes Oxley, from practicing law.
