At Bridgewater, Melody leads a team of professionals providing world-class service to institutional clients globally. In addition, she serves as the senior sponsor of Bridgewater’s Black affinity network, helping to build and sustain a collaborative community of black employees and their allies. This work has included both mentoring and raising awareness about the needs of black employees, such as the conversation she organized to commemorate the killing of George Floyd while also exploring the roots of systemic racism. In 2018, she co-founded Women of Color in Investments, an invite-only networking and professional development group for senior women of color in the investment industry. Among several board roles, Melody is especially proud of being the board chair for Custom Collaborative, a transformational organization dedicated to training, mentoring, and advocating for low-income women to build the skills necessary for economic success in the sustainable fashion industry and society.
