Calgary Chapter

WCM is pleased to announce our expansion to Calgary! Our new national platform provides a powerful voice for change and action and we are excited to realize the benefits of this growth and evolution in our organization and our impact on the industry.

Women across the country, from university students to senior professionals, have expressed their commitment to WCM’s mission and have joined us in our efforts to drive change on a national scale. With this momentum, we look forward to increasing our reach and advancing women in these new markets.

In 2017, WCM will launch initiatives in Calgary, which include programs for female university students to educate and connect them with opportunities in the capital markets, to professional development and networking opportunities for women at all career stages in the industry.

Our People
Jaclyn Perrot
Co-Chair, Calgary Chapter

Treasurer and Director of Investments: University of Calgary

Main goals of Co-Founding WCM Calgary:
I believe one of the main reasons young women are reluctant to pursue a career in the capital markets is a lack of awareness of the opportunities available to them. I am excited to be working with an organization that educates people on the benefits of gender diversity and encourages women to strive for senior level positions in our industry. My goals are to help women working with the capital markets to see their potential to advance and to educate the next generation of finance leaders on the benefits of diverse teams.

Marnie Smith
Co-Chair, Calgary Chapter

Head, Canadian Oil and Gas: Macquarie Group

Main goals of Co-Founding WCM Calgary:
I am extremely honoured to join the ranks of over 1,500 women across Canada who are part of the Women in Capital Markets network, and I am extremely excited to be part of this initiative in Calgary.

Through my career in investment banking I have been surprised by how few women I meet in boardrooms, in the "C-suite" and generally across the industry in Calgary. I am fortunate to work for a progressive company, which firmly believes in the value of diversity. Through Macquarie I have had the privilege of being involved in numerous training and sponsorship programs aimed at retaining high potential women across the firm. I believe these programs have made a positive impact on my career and I am certain there is a need in Calgary for similar programs and for the community that Women in Capital Markets can provide.

My goal is to create a community of female business professionals in Calgary, across capital markets, finance, industry and law that will drive change in our city by increasing the pipeline of young women pursuing professional careers in Calgary and by providing a network of support and sponsorship to ensure Calgary women continue to advance through the ranks of their professions.
