MET Business Alum, Women’s History Trailblazer Receives Prestigious London Honors

Tangy Morgan (MET’16) was one of five BU alumnae featured in a recent Bostonia article lauding women whose accomplishments reflect prestigiously on Boston University.

Morgan—who earned her MS in Business Continuity, Security & Risk Management (now titled the MS in Enterprise Risk Management) at Metropolitan College—is the external senior advisor to the Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority, and is the first Black woman to hold that role. Her organization oversees more than fifteen hundred financial institutions, including banks and insurance companies.

The theme for each year’s Women’s History Month is set by the National Women’s History Alliance, and this year’s spotlight is being shone on women who advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Throughout my diverse career in the US and internationally,” Morgan, a financial services executive with more than 25 years of experience in the United States, London, and Bermuda, told Bostonia, “I have and continue to inspire inclusion by using my influence and position to challenge stereotypes that exist in the professional spaces that I occupy and bring other women and underrepresented groups to the table with me.

Morgan recently received two major honors from the city of London. First, she was given the Freedom of the City Award from the City of London Corporation—a prize that recognizes individuals who make outstanding contributions to London and public life and dates back to the 13th century. She was also featured in the city’s International Women’s Day celebration.
