The WIBF Awards are 25 years old this year and in those 25 years we have 148 winners who make up our Awards Alumni.

This year is the 25th anniversary of the Women in Banking and Finance Awards for Achievement – 25 years of excellence and 148 winners!

Since 1998, our award winners have impressed us, colleagues and organisations with their astonishing individual and team achievements and shown their continued commitment to sustainable diversity in the financial services.

Of course, the passion and brilliance of our winners does not stop when we place the trophy in their hands. It is just the beginning of forging a wonderful relationship between WIBF and our inspirational winners, the best-of-the-best, one-of-a-kind people that make up this growing community. A community to channel that passion for progress and commitment to change.

WIBF wants to encourage the Awards Alumni to create a welcoming and inclusive community for its members, for it to be a forum to share ideas and best practice, and for it to provide support and a focus for inspirational practical possibilities. A conduit of change.

We want this anniversary year to energise and excite our Awards Alumni about the potential of their network and so are holding a community conversation to hear all views on the best way to facilitate this. Originally scheduled for Thursday 22 March, this is now taking place on Wednesday 19 April from 5.30pm-7.30pm.

Would you like to join the conversation and share your thoughts? Please email [email protected].


We saw the 2022 awards winners welcomed into our alumni in December when WIBF President and CEO, Anna Lane, hosted a fireside chat with Iris Bohnet, the Albert Pratt Professor of Business and Government and the Co-director of the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard Kennedy School and WIBF Patron. Iris’s insights stimulated an evening of lively discussion.
