Who Runs the World? We Do!

Mar 7, 2022

On your mark, get set, go! The 100 Women in Finance members’ global fitness challenge has begun and will take place throughout Women’s History Month from March 1 – March 31, 2022. Bigger than a fitness challenge, this event is being run in support of the 100 Women in Finance Investing in the Next Generation Initiative. Join the participants who are already running and walking to support the next generation of women in finance.

Preparing Leaders for Tomorrow

Proceeds from the challenge will be used to support the 100 Women in Finance Investing in the Next Generation Initiative, which aims to reach, inspire, and support young women at high school, university, and business school levels who will become a talent pipeline for the future leadership of the industry.

Through the Next Generation Initiative, we employ a number of ongoing initiatives where we encourage pre-career women to look more favorably at a career in finance and investments, create educational opportunities to support young women seeking to join the industry, and facilitate an ongoing peer network. This effort is in support of our overall mission to strengthen the global finance industry by empowering women to achieve their professional potential at each career stage. We operate under the guiding principle we call Vision 30/40. It is the goal for women to occupy 30 percent of investment team and executive leadership roles by 2040.

There’s Still Time to Join Us!
