Celebrating Female Leadership In the Department & Community

The Wonder Women of Metro Luncheon celebrates and recognizes female leadership in law enforcement and in our communities. The Luncheon benefits the LVMPD Foundation and reminds us to appreciate the wonderful women in our lives who are dedicated to public safety and our community.

We have had the honor of featuring these trailblazing women as keynote speakers: Diana Bennett, Chairman of the Board and co-founder of Paragon Gaming; philanthropist Kris Engelstad McGarry; filmmaker Robin Greenspun; Aces president Nikki Fargas; Missy Young, Chief Information Officer at SWITCH; and Punam Mathur, executive director of the Elaine P. Wynn and Family Foundation.

In addition to raising important funds for the LVMPD Foundation, this public awareness initiative pushed the needle forward as we continue our work to strengthen the relationships between LVMPD and the community. By recognizing and highlighting the women in the department and the importance that diverse perspectives bring to our community, we become stronger and safer.

Our Keynote Speaker

Tina Quigley

President & CEO, Las Vegas Global Economic Alliance

Tina Quigley joined the LVGEA in February 2022. Her priorities for the agency include strengthening partnerships with regional economic development stakeholders and workforce training programs.

Prior to the LVGEA, Tina served as CEO for the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada. She oversaw the region’s public transportation, traffic management center, road construction and funding, and regional planning.

During her tenure, Quigley embraced and fought for sweeping technological advances, advocated for comprehensive future planning, and built critical partnerships to position the Las Vegas Valley for ongoing and sustained economic vitality.

She believes firmly in approaching regional projects with collaborative, multiagency communication, and public inclusion. Many of the RTC’s successes during her tenure can be credited to this collaborative approach. Specific examples include: the Transportation Resource Advisory Committee (TRAC), the Fuel Revenue Indexing (FRI) tax initiative, and execution of the Southern Nevada Strong regional plan.

Quigley began her career as a planner at Harry Reid International Airport where, over 15 years, she grew to oversee the major capital projects program. She is a licensed pilot and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Airport Planning & Development from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and is an alumnus of Harvard Business School’s Program for Leadership Development.

She is active on several boards including Workforce Connections, NV GrantLab, Fulfillment Fund of Las Vegas, Desert Research Institute, and the Nevada Chapter of the International Women’s Forum.
