Washington—Women We Admire has named Jennifer Marietta-Westberg to its list of Top 50 Women Leaders in the Washington, DC, area. Published annually, the list recognizes “trailblazers [who are] raising the bar in their fields, paving the way for future women in their profession.”
Dr. Marietta-Westberg was honored for leadership throughout her wide-ranging career, which has included roles as an academic, author, economist with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), economic and financial consultant, and testifying expert.
“Jennifer plays a key role in the firm’s finance-related and securities work, and demonstrates deep commitment to her clients and colleagues,” said Alexander “Sasha” Aganin, who heads Cornerstone Research’s financial institutions practice. “The tremendous depth of knowledge she brings from her years as an academic and at the SEC also makes her a notable expert in the finance space. We congratulate her on this recognition of her considerable skills.”
Dr. Marietta-Westberg focuses on matters related to financial reporting, asset management, trading, private equity, and M&A. She has chaired the SEC’s Investor Advisory Committee, and also serves on the board of directors at the Institute for Law and Economics (ILE) at the University of Pennsylvania.

“It is an honor to be part of this extraordinary group of women,” Dr. Marietta-Westberg noted. “Throughout my career, I have worked in many different capacities, and am fortunate to have received mentoring and encouragement at each stage. I feel privileged to support the next generation of women economists as they realize their own potential in this challenging, rewarding field.”
