Ahead of this year's conference, Producer Lucy Cottle explains why the industry needs to break the mould
The Women in Finance World Series launched in 2018 and, following sell-out events in London, Sydney and Amsterdam, we are now bringing the world’s largest conference series dedicated to driving gender diversity in finance to Dublin.
Everybody who attends our events has the same aim: to disrupt the status quo. Women in Finance Dublin is a cutting-edge event, designed to drive change, ignite ambition and shift the dial on gender balance at the top of financial services companies throughout Ireland.
Female talent remains one of the most under-utilised business resources. As career level rises, female representation declines. Fewer than one in five CEO positions in the financial sector in Ireland went to women last year. Ireland has seen its gender pay gap widen from 12% in 2014 to 14% in late 2017. There is clearly a need for change.
The time for change is now, and Women in Finance Dublin is the forum. Are you hungry for unique insight and practical tips to help fulfil your personal and professional goals? Would you like to network with your peers and learn from others facing common challenges? Are you ready to learn how to improve diversity and inclusion within your organisation?
By joining us in Dublin, you will become an integral part of the fight to change things. You’ll be equipped with the skills, knowledge and connections needed to alter the course of history of the financial services industry and push forward in your career. Get ready to break the mould and stand out from the crowd!
Be inspired, network, supercharge your career
