Why I'm Involved with WCM

WCM is a unique platform to meet skilled and talented women working within Capital Markets and provides the tools to help women reveal their talent, equip them to communicate their ambition and propel their career. Being part of such inspiring initiatives to promote women to become leaders is not only rewarding on a personal level but is also a step forward towards new opportunities for the industry. I want to encourage talented women to achieve their full potential and to contribute to the advancement of women within this complex industry. It is quite fulfilling to see the changes occurring in recent years and being part of that movement has always been very important to me.

Why I am involved with WCM: 

Being at the early stage of my career, I thrive at the opportunity of meeting and learn from the women who succeed in the industry and try to make it better every day for the next generation of women. With my experience, I realized that one of the reasons why there were fewer women, was maybe a lack of knowledge of what this industry can offer. By joining WCM and its UniConnect committee, I hope I can inspire and educate students to consider a job in finance.

Why I'm involved with WCM
In the upper echelons of financial management and investment services, female workers have long been notoriously scarce and historically underrepresented. When it comes to balancing gender equality, finance has simply not kept pace with many other professional fields. My mission is to contribute to the acceleration of equality in Finance.

Why I am involved with WCM: 

I have decided to get involved with WCM because I’ve always found that young women are not aware of what a career in capital markets can offer them. They often think that it’s what you see on TV and that it wouldn’t be a fit for them. I believe it is extremely important to educate the next generation and attract the best talent to our industry. I also fell into Capital Markets by chance and wish someone would have enlightened me on all the career possibilities.

Why I'm Involved with WCM

WCM provides a unique platform to help young women to setup their career goal in Capital Markets. And let them know that they can be successful in this used to be a male-dominated workplace. WCM also offers an opportunity to meet women in Capital Markets who share similar interests and experience. I'm happy to be a part of it.
