International Women’s Day feature with Stephanie Koch, Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City

As a women-owned business, we are honored to highlight women who are incredible leaders in marketing and communications across a wide variety of industries. Each year on International Women’s Day we share an interview series celebrating these women and sharing their stories. 

This interview is with Stephanie Koch, CEO of the Boys & Girls Club of Atlantic City.

How do you define your leadership?

A dedicated, social service leader with a proven business acumen, I pride myself in being a systems-level thinker, using business strategy to drive social impact.

How has your leadership changed in the past year?

I aim to be transparent while lifting up my colleagues with every step. All achievements must be team-oriented, driven, and celebrated; the same goes for challenges with every emergence.

Can you share a story that demonstrates a key learning for you in your leadership journey?

When COVID struck our community, I knew this challenge would be one that impacted us organizationally, but also individually. Yet we pushed forward, keeping our mission at heart as the cornerstone for our drive to serve. When schools went virtual, we opened up our doors to house learning pods. When families were hungry, we orchestrated food distributions. And when residents questioned vaccination, we educated them to dispel the myths and later hosted vaccination clinics, recognizing that we needed to continue to stand as the scaffolding our community needs to climbs for a brighter future ahead. As the leader, I remained steadfast and supportive, yet understanding and ALWAYS prepared to listen.
