Marcy Twete is a leader in sustainability and responsibility in the corporate sector. She believes (to tweak a quote from Former President Bill Clinton) there is nothing wrong with corporate America that cannot be cured by what is right with corporate America. Marcy currently leads corporate responsibility and sustainability initiatives for the Americas region for ArcelorMittal, the world’s largest steel and mining company. This seven-country region includes more than 50,000 employees and produces more than 30 million tons of steel each year. With that comes a vast array of sustainability and corporate responsibility issues ranging from environmental responsibility to community resilience, from building trusted supply chains to driving a lower carbon footprint.
Prior to joining ArcelorMittal, Marcy spent nearly a decade in the nonprofit industry, working and consulting for organizations including WomenVenture, Pillsbury United Communities, Women Thrive, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, the University of Cambridge and others. She led and advised annual and capital campaigns ranging from $3 million to $4 billion. She is also the founder and former CEO of a women’s career development initiative that attracted more than 1 million women to its services from 2012-2014 and the author of the book “You Know Everybody! A Career Girl’s Guide to Building a Network That Works.”
Marcy is the Chair of the Chicago Board of Directors for Step Up Women’s Network, a Trustee at the Chicago Architecture Foundation, and a member of the Board of Directors for the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwestern Indiana. She received her undergraduate degree in Political Science from the College of Saint Benedict and is currently completing the Northwestern University Kellogg School of Business’ Executive MBA program.
