Sharing knowledge and celebrating the achievements of women in finance.

Over the years, representation of women in the UK financial services industry has improved; as of 2019, women made up 43% of the finance workforce. However, if we dig deeper into this representation, we see that there is much work to be done to achieve gender parity in the FS industry, where women make up only:

33% of all board positions in the UK’s FTSE 100 companies

20% of executive committee members in major financial services firms

15% of finance directors

12% of CFO roles globally

Less than 1 in 5 C-suite positions in Financial Services

The Women in Finance UK Summit will explore 4 key themes at the intersection of finance, diversity, equity & inclusion, and professional development:

• Creating a Forward-Thinking Future with Finance
• Widening Access to Financial Services
• Progress and Pitfalls for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Financial Services
• Professional Development at the Top
