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

To build a stronger pipeline of young women entering our field, our Investing in the Next Generation Initiative works to encourage young women to look more favorably at a career in finance and investments; create educational opportunities and access points to support young women who want to join the industry; and facilitate an ongoing peer network for young women in the industry.

To implement programming, 100WF has partnered with four nonprofit organizations in the US – Forté Foundation, CAIA Association, Girls Who Invest, and Smart Woman Securities – and CAIA Association in Hong Kong.
