Sharon Bowen is breaking down barriers at Wall Street, becoming the first Black woman to be named board chair of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). Pinning itself as the world’s largest stock exchange, the Wall Street brokerage currently houses 2,400 listed companies with a combined capitalization of $36 trillion, TRT World reports. Bowen’s new role follows just shortly after the Intercontinental Exchange Inc. (ICE) revealed they would make leadership changes to advance with the market. “As organizations everywhere adjust to a world transformed by the pandemic, our management team is evolving along with the market environment,” ICE founder Jeff Sprecher said in a letter announcing the changes, according to TRT World.
