Recognising talent in 2021 – the details

2021's Recognition of Achievement

This 2021 virtual event was our opportunity to recognise and celebrate individuals, across the UK’s financial services sector, who are progressing gender equality.

Stepping back from our annual awards, which took place in March 2021, having been postponed from 2020, we wanted to showcase the work by individuals from our valued corporate partners that had achieved success and have become role models.

On 14th October 2021, we hosted a packed 90 minutes of panel discussions, key note speakers and details of WIBF’s exciting plans for 2022. Hosted by Kate Thornton, journalist and television broadcaster, and Anna Lane, President of WIBF, we were joined live by Alison Rose, CEO of NatWest Group and the first female to run a UK financial conglomerate and high street bank. And we heard from Dame Inga Beale on her experiences as in the City of London before and during her time as the CEO of Lloyd’s of London.

The Recognition of Achievement virtual event was made possible by Citi, HSBC, Cynergy Bank, Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs, LSEG and TEN Group.
