We are thrilled to announce that David Craig, CEO of Refinitiv, will join us to launch the Women in Banking & Finance Distinguished Speaker Mini Series. Vivienne Artz, President of the WIBF, and Chair of the Distinguished Speaker Mini Series, will lead the conversation with David.
This series features high profile executives from across the financial services sector who have diversity and inclusion at the forefront of their business agenda. These short, sharp, virtual events will give an insight into the current hot topics that are occupying senior business leaders and will offer participants the opportunity to pose questions.
At this event, David will discuss his thoughts on COVID-19 and the impact it has had on the gender debate. He will also share his thoughts on sustainability, gender metrics and the wider global discussion on inclusion. Please join us for what promises to be an insightful and exciting event.
“As a data driven business operating in 190 countries, we know that one piece of data must change: the number of women in leadership roles in business, technology and finance. It’s why we have set our own ambitious targets, why we have been a long-term supporter of WIBF and why we will work with you to inspire our sector to hire, promote and develop women.”
