Get the latest news - as it happens
Every woman's professional journey is unique...
But if you’ve had honest conversations with your colleagues, you know that we are more alike than different. We really do have common views and experiences when it comes to financial services work.
What’s missing from our industry is an event organized around this point-of-view. So, we decided to create one.
I know that I want to meet with other women who share my experiences - women who have so much great expertise to share, who want to get to know one another better, advance their careers and, as they do, improve workplace culture for everyone. I’ll bet that you do, too.
We're already working on our 2nd annual event! Let's stay in touch, and tell me if you'd like to be involved.
Amy Perkins, Chair
Women in Consumer Finance
It's not about calling men out, but rather calling women up...
I am so excited about this conference. It feels like everything I’ve done before has led me to this point. This is not be a conference about compliance or best practices, but about women; about the common professional challenges we face, about how to tell our own career story, about building our network, and about enhancing the culture at each of our companies.
I’ve had several pretty distinct careers across a wide variety of industries. I have often found myself to be the only woman in a room, or one of just a few. As I think back on my career, I realize that nobody has ever really taken me under their wing, or been a champion for me. It's a disappointment because I know how powerful that can be. Nonetheless, I am where I am, and I - like you - have a story to share.
This event is not about calling men out, but rather calling women up. I hope you’ll join me and Amy for our 2nd annual conference in December 2019!
