If we are serious about increasing the number of women in senior roles in the Financial industry, we have to increase our focus on upcoming and talented women and coach and nurture them.
The inaugural Women in the COO Community Leadership Evening was a great platform to reach out to more than 100 female rising stars. With a panel featuring senior women, all with different and interesting stories, the event itself generated a lot of energy and participation.
I know I speak for many who attended when I say it was very inspiring, including for those who were on the panel.

“It was a pleasure to see so many engaged and talented participants at the event.
I believe that being a COO within Financial Services is an aspirational career choice that is inclusive of a diverse range of backgrounds and experience.
I learnt a lot listening to my fellow panellists – and I look forward to putting some of these lessons learned into practice myself.
Such an energising and uplifting event to participate in which has sparked much debate back in the office.
I am so pleased to be able to participate in this initiative and truly think events like this will help us to identify and promote female talent across the financial services.
