About Women in Finance West Coast

Are you ready to turn a moment into a movement?

Following sell-outs events in London, Sydney and Amsterdam, we are bringing the world’s largest conference series dedicated to driving gender diversity in Finance to the US.

The representation of women in the higher echelons is appalling – only 12% of the CEOs of large US financial firms are women. Even worse, women hold just 9% of senior roles in venture capital and only 6% in private equity. 

Rectifying gender balance is not just a women’s issue - it affects everyone.

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?

Become an integral part of the movement challenging traditions and join a vibrant community of over 500 professionals to make an impact on the sector! It’s time to get those feet off the sticky floor and smash through the glass ceiling!
