New York, NY – October 10, 2007—Nadja Fidelia (’02), managing director of Lehman Brothers and a trustee of the Baruch College Fund, is profiled as a “woman of influence” in the October issue of Essence magazine. The feature by Wendy L. Wilson is entitled, “Power Moves: Meet top women who are changing their industries, and learn the power principles that guide them.”
Dubbed “The Wall Street Wonder” in the article, the 42 year-old Fidelia is a rarity on Wall Street since few African-American women inhabit the upper echelons of power in the finance industry. According to the article, as co-founder of Lehman Brothers’ Partnership Solutions Group, she heads the division responsible for developing working relationships with financial firms owned by women and other minorities, as well as helping to strengthen mentoring and recruiting efforts through the company’s Women’s Initiatives Leading Lehman group.
"We’ve introduced new clients to Lehman, having conversations we’ve never had before. It has had a phenomenal impact on the firm overall,” she is quoted as saying.
Fidelia also shares her financial prowess by helping support the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Emphasizing her belief in the connection between spirituality and inner peace, Fidelia is also pursuing a master of divinity at the New York Theological Society.
