Event Overview

In business—and life—we’re surrounded by signs that help us navigate our way in the world. Market indices. Bellweathers. Barometers. What are the signs—the leading indicators—that help us lead better?

For nearly three decades, Toigo’s leading indicators have been the advancement of individuals who have demonstrated the skill, determination, and commitment to business leadership—Toigo talent who have benefited from Toigo’s support throughout the arc of their career. Our leading indicators are also institutions that have demonstrated the courage and dedication to drive inclusion within their organizations and serve as role models for our industry. They are all shining examples of what is possible.

We invite you join Toigo at our 2018 Annual Gala, where we will celebrate the achievement, impact and success—at every level—bolstering our unparalleled work to promote diverse leadership and success.
