Unique networking opportunities through the virtual platform and the event’s matchmaking feature will allow attendees to connect directly with one another and expand their professional network.

“Women’s careers in the financial services are statistically known to peak at middle-management before leaving the industry altogether. Now when you add how the pandemic has disproportionately affected women’s careers into the mix, there’s a real need for a global platform that not only provides opportunities to invest their careers but also provides content that helps women in finance solve real-world problems,” said Michaela Jeffery-Morrison, Co-founder and CEO of Ascend Global Media.

Tickets are on sale now. To find out more about what’s in store at the Women in Finance Online Festival, including the full confirmed speaker line up, featured sessions, and remaining sponsorship opportunities, please visit the event website here.
