Wendy Mont­gomery is a tal­ented and ver­sa­tile se­nior ex­ec­u­tive who has taken on in­creas­ingly se­nior roles in a highly suc­cess­ful ca­reer in mar­ket­ing, sales and gen­eral man­age­ment span­ning three decades and four con­ti­nents. Un­der Mont­gomery’s lead­er­ship, the lottery busi­ness has grown from $2.5 bil­lion in rev­enue in 2007 to $3.8 bil­lion in 2016.

“Have your facts and com­mu­ni­cate them clearly and ra­tio­nally. I find that if women use their pas­sion and emo­tion to make a case, it is of­ten dis­missed.”

“Peo­ple in po­si­tions of power have to be­lieve that there is value in di­ver­sity in the work­force at all lev­els. It starts from the top. Lead­ers have to em­brace the idea that there may be dif­fer­ent ways for peo­ple to con­trib­ute to the goals of an or­ga­ni­za­tion.”
