WIBF are supporting the Women in Finance Summit 2018 22nd March in London. President Vivienne Artz to be speaking at the event.

In October 2017 The Treasury Committee launched a new inquiry into Women in Finance focusing on HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter and the progress it has made. The Committee will seek to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services industry and will examine the value to financial firms of having greater gender balance. It will also scrutinise the impact of Government and financial regulators as role models for good gender diversity practices.

This high-profile forum builds on the success of the previous editions of the Women in Business and the Women in Finance summits, which both attracted 250+ senior delegates from across business, government and the regulatory community, both here and overseas.

The conference will examine the role of the Government and financial regulators in addressing the imbalance of seniority between genders and determine what can be done to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services sector.

It will also review the progress made since the launch of the HM Treasury’s Charter and assess the impact the Charter has had on signatory companies, the benefits they are realising and the challenges the firms face in meeting their Charter commitments.

Other topics include:

  • What is the UK Government’s strategy for ensuring that the potential of women in the boardroom and in the senior management of the financial services industry is being realised?
  • Enhancing female leadership, empowering productivity and harnessing the talents of women in financial services
  • Promoting “The Power of Equality” and moving towards closing “three Gs” – the participation gap, the remuneration gap and advancement gap
  • Gender Pay Regulations – what are the reports showing and what impact will they have on the financial services sector?
  • Aligning your passion with skill – what are the key components to a successful career in the financial services industry? Insights from successful women in the financial services world
  • What next? Moving forward and finding the ways to drive permanent and sustainable change across the financial services industry. Best practices to effectively engage men in implementation of your gender diversity programmes.
