100 Women in Finance Launches a New Industry DEI Award to celebrate companies that are the leaders in innovation and positive action in the area of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Finance Industry.
EMEA submissions are now being accepted. The first of three regional awards to be presented at 100WF 2022 London Gala, April 6, 2022
A core component of 100 Women in Finance’s mission is to inspire, equip and advocate for a new generation of industry leadership, in which women and men serve as investment professionals and executives, equal in achievement and impact.
In 2019, the Board of 100 Women in Finance (100WF) recognized that the demographics of the industry had changed very little in 20 years. To see any difference in the numbers there would need to be a concerted effort by 100WF, in partnership with the industry to make this change happen. 100WF now operates under a guiding vision, Vision 30/40 which is to see 30% representation of women in senior investment roles and executive committee positions by 2040.
The goal of the 100WF Industry DEI Award is to encourage innovation and positive action in the area of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion within different firms across the industry. We seek to recognize those organizations who are driving forward and shaping the future of women in the finance industry. With the introduction of the 100WF Industry Award—100WF and JP Morgan hope to make these organizations efforts and positive results more visible to other companies and individuals, inspiring others to be catalysts of change.
