We are committed to increase female representation in the finance profession at all levels and regularly host events to target the issue.
SHoF Women in Finance initiative is sprung from the fact that women remain severely under represented in senior roles in Finance and Financial Services – both among practitioners and academia.
Our aim is to attract and promote females at all levels in the finance industry and in the academic field of finance.
Women in Finance - Seminars and Conferences
Our "Women in Finance" series of events is an important tool to promote female role models and to encourage female representation in our activities.
The Academic Female Finance Committee AFFECT estimates the share of female academics in finance to be around 20 percent across all career levels, decreasing significantly with seniority. Our explicit goal for our seminar series is to have the share of female presenters at least equal to the share of females in the profession. We have reached this goal for all of our seminar series - academic as well as practitioner - during 2018.
"We actively work to attract more women to study Finance through initiatives like Women’s Finance Day and Women’s Finance Network.”
