Women Leaders of Wall Street

The conference will feature ancillary events, such as the 2nd annual Women Leaders of Wall Street (Willows) panel. Clearly, women have made great strides in employment representation in the financial services industry. A 2003 U.S. EEOC report showed that women now make up 48.6 percent of the banking workforce (and 43 percent overall across financial services).* However, the majority of these women are in clerical or non-management positions in human resources, marketing and IT, which are generally non-profit center roles. One of the reasons for this discrepancy can be attributed to the lack of long-standing, formal executive networks between women in financial services. Events such as Women Leaders of Wall Street (Willows) give women executives the venue to create relationships and contacts that provide a foundation for professional growth and development. A second panel will cover Career & Leadership growth, providing tangible tips and advice for securing a lucrative career & position of influence as a woman in technology within the financial services industry.
