Women in Finance Awards 2017
Despite making up more than half the finance workforce, women continue to dramatically lag behind their male counterparts in leadership roles.
“Women account for 23 per cent of board members and just 14 per cent of executive committee members across UK-regulated financial services companies. But this is nowhere near ideal.”
The Women in Finance Awards is the finance industry’s largest diversity initiative, recognising the high-achievers, advocates, and role models for women in the sector.
The event, organised by GrowthBusiness.co.uk and What Investment magazine will bring together key stakeholders to raise awareness of the sector’s diversity problem, further the gender balance agenda, as well as to celebrate inclusion, leadership and finance excellence. www.womeninfinance.co.uk
