Newsmaker: An advocate for change

By Leah Golob | Investment Executive | March 01, 2018

The new head of Women in Capital Markets is well positioned to promote greater equality within the industry

For Camilla Sutton, recently appointed president and CEO of Toronto-based Women in Capital Markets (WCM), the time has never been more favourable to create real and lasting change in the investment industry.

Sutton’s desire to see more women playing key roles in this business was a key motivator for taking the top job at WCM in late January – especially as the rise of the #MeToo movement has thrust the topic of women succeeding in traditionally male-dominated workplaces to the forefront.

“All women within the industry face a host of barriers, from unconscious bias to lack of mentorship to an industry that has been structured with a very strong male presence,” Sutton says.

Joining WCM is a vote for diversity, inclusion, equality and change.

Join our movement to ensure gender diversity for our future generation.
