Chicago, IL -- The Chicago Teachers' Pension Fund (CTPF) Chief Investment Officer Angela Miller-May, has been chosen Trailblazer of the Year by the Women Investment Professionals Organization (WIP) of Chicago. WIP is a professional women's organization based in Chicago, that supports women in the institutional investment community. The award was presented virtually at their Annual Trailblazer event on Thursday, October 22, 2020.

According to WIP, "This annual achievement is awarded through a nomination process of WIP members in Chicago. Members are asked to nominate a woman that is well established in her career, disrupting the institutional investment industry, and truly blazing the trail for the next generation of women."

"It is an honor to be recognized for my work at CTPF and beyond by individuals who share my passion for the investment industry and understand the critical importance of elevating women, especially women of color," stated CIO Angela Miller-May. "I try to use the platform that I have as an investment professional of a major pension fund to push for more equality and diversity in the investment industry. I strive to lead by example. You can't as one person change the world, but you can change 'your' world. If every person strives to do this, the world, as a result, will change for the better.”

She reviews asset allocations, develops investment strategies, evaluates, and recommends investment opportunities, and analyzes valuation and risk metrics.
