The occasion was marked by an event hosted last evening by UBS Private Wealth Management that was attended by senior practitioners from Philadelphia’s finance community. The program featured a fireside chat with Ellen Yin, restaurateur and founder of High Street Hospitality Group, and included remarks by Philadelphian Mimi Drake, co-CEO of Permit Capital Advisors and an Emerita Board Chair of 100WF’s Global Association Board. Other attendees included 100WF’s COO Ann Henry, and founding 100WF Board member Mindy Posoff and Emerita Co-Founder Dana Hall, also both Philadelphians.
100WF’s Philadelphia location will be co-chaired by Julie Fox, Managing Director, Market Head, Mid-Atlantic Private Wealth Management at UBS Financial Services. Ms. Fox remarked “We are thrilled to launch 100 Women in Finance in Philadelphia. I have been involved with the organization for many years and am proud of the impact it has women of all ages and at all points in their careers. 100WF Philadelphia will provide networking fulfillment to successful senior practitioners and to the next generation of female finance professionals, which was a void in our city up until now.”
Ms. Fox’s co-chair, Emily Turner, Private Wealth Advisor at Goldman Sachs & Co. LLC said, “For more than 18 years, 100 Women in Finance has been committed to empowering professional women across the globe. We are so excited to bring this powerful mission to Philadelphia, where we have a vibrant community of financial professionals.
