Empower women working in the finance industry. Support us today!

Our Investing in the Next Generation initiative aims to reach, inspire, and support women at high school, university, and business school who will become a talent pipeline for the future leadership of the finance industry.

100WF encourages early-career women to look more favorably at a career in finance and investments; creates educational opportunities and access points to support women who want to join the industry; facilitates an ongoing peer network for women across various roles; and emphasizes the need for greater visibility and role models.

In addition to our programming, 100WF extends our mission by identifying, funding, and aligning with expert industry partners who work toward our shared vision. These partner organizations enable grass roots academic/pre-professional preparation and opportunities for our members to make a direct impact on girls and young women in the members’ local communities through mentoring, tutoring and providing exposure to careers in finance.

In 2019, 100WF’s global philanthropic theme is Investing in the Next Generation, and members and supporters are invited to join us in establishing more purposeful pathways into the finance industry for women and in supporting them in the early years of their careers.
