Sharon Allen

Sharon L. Allen, the first woman to chair the board of Deloitte & Touche USA, will speak on "Global Trends That Have an Impact on Today's Corporate Decision Making," at 6:15 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 19, at the Johns Hopkins Nitze School of Advanced International Studies.

Allen's talk is part of the Ginder Lecture Series, a semiannual event sponsored by the Graduate Division of Business and Management of the School of Professional Studies in Business and Education.

Allen was named to her position at Deloitte & Touche in May 2003, following progressive achievements and firsts over her 30-year career. Deloitte, one of the nation's leading professional services firms, provides audit, tax, consulting and financial advisory services to nearly 30,000 people in more than 80 U.S. cities and serves more than one-half of the world's largest companies. Allen is also on the board of the global firm Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, where she co-chairs the risk management committee and serves on the board's global governance committee.

Before becoming chair, Allen served as a member of the firm's board of directors and was managing partner of its Pacific Southwest practice, the organization's second-largest regional office.

William Ginder, a 1954 graduate of SPSBE, and his wife, Katherine, established the William M. and Katherine B. Ginder Lecture Fund at SPSBE in 1989. Twice a year, the fund brings speakers to campus to discuss timely and stimulating economic issues affecting the region and the nation.
