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

When I started in the industry, I was the only young female analyst in a CIB group of about 30 professionals. My colleagues were not used to female colleagues and did not know how to interact with me. As a result, most of them chose not to speak to me at all. It was very intimidating; yet I was there doing a job that I had badly wanted. So I stayed. Twenty years later I am still working in this thrilling industry and I want to encourage more young women to join me. With proper support from a network of women already active in the industry, women now can experience their career in a working environment that is both female friendly and actively engaged in promoting gender diversity.

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.
