Anna Lloyd, an experienced executive of organization management, leadership and the study of ethical behavior within teams, is engaged in the next generation design of institutions. The cofounder of the Chicago Institute for Holistic Passionate Leadership, she provides personal, private, workplace, training for human resource executives dedicated to idea generation and thought leadership. Her commitment to the education and practice of social entrepreneurship has produced significant growth among nonprofits in Chicago and New York City, and attracted multiple donor advised impact investments.
The integration of business objectives with social impact facilitated her serving as Founding Executive Director for the Center for Integrative Leadership at the University of Minnesota’s Carlson School of Management, after completing eight years as President and Executive Director of the national Committee of 200 (C200), and C200 Foundation, the international women’s business organization featuring the top women corporate and entrepreneurial executives. While directing the C200 Foundation, signature research included Teens on Business, a collaboration with the Simmons School of Management, featuring high school girls’ attitudes on business and entrepreneurship. Lloyd has taught for McCormick Theological Seminary’s executive leadership institute, the Divinity School at the University of Chicago, and the Carlson School’s Center for Integrative Leadership, and remains engaged with re designing tools to respond to millennials engaged in interdisciplinary academic research and business practice.
Trained in New York City economic policy, serving as a vice president for the city’s Financial Services Corporation, Lloyd was active in providing financial incentives and industrial bonds to leverage the retention of jobs and sustaining multinational firm hubs in Manhattan, contributing to the direct retention of Morgan Stanley (JPMorgan Chase), and the advent of the Metro Tech Corridor, a downtown Brooklyn campus that featured the expansion of Wall Street into the boroughs of New York and the alliance of technical institutes with the finance sector.
Currently living in Chicago, teaching leadership practice in organization management and social entrepreneurship to MBA students, Lloyd has recently been active in the launch of Compassion It Chicago, a citywide campaign to reclaim Chicago as a compassionate city, working with financial executives and City Hall, and promoting corporate connection with city neighborhood programs in education and sports. Adjunct teaching at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University of Chicago, Lloyd facilitates entrepreneurial and corporate social responsibility priorities with citywide programming opportunities, recently successful in attracting Harvard’s BLab consideration of impact bonds as a tool for expanding workforce development and low income housing in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood.
