100 Women in Finance strengthens the global finance industry by empowering women to achieve their professional potential at each career stage. Its members inspire, equip and advocate for a new generation of industry leaders, in which women and men serve as investment professionals and executives, equal in achievement and impact. Through Education, Peer Engagement, and Impact, the organization furthers the progress of women who have chosen finance as a career and enables their positive influence over pre-career young women.
“Now in its 20th year, 100 Women in Finance reaches thousands of firms and registered members in 28 locations with the mission to build a more diverse and gender-equitable finance industry. However, we see this as the beginning,” said Amanda Pullinger, Chief Executive Officer, 100 Women in Finance. “Promoting diversity of thought and raising female visibility fuels our efforts daily and is what gets us closer to Vision 30/40, an industry goal we have set for women to occupy 30% of senior investment roles and executive committee positions by 2040. Achieving a goal like Vision 30/40 requires that we reach more women who are already in finance, and it means that we need to advocate for a new generation of industry leadership.”
