Former banker Cathy E. Minehan, MBA, is the chair of Mass General’s Board of Trustees. Cathy’s long career in the Federal Reserve Bank system included many firsts: she was the first woman to become the first vice president of any reserve bank, the first woman to become president of the Boston bank and only the second female president in the whole federal bank system. She discusses the importance of being your own advocate, how she repeatedly broke gender barriers and how her success in banking has led to a fulfilling second career guiding some of the region’s and the nation’s top organizations as a board member.
