So what’s your story? 

    As women, we’re often raised to stand amongst the crowd and blend in; stay quiet. But this is your time to shine! Stand out. Be heard. In-person or online, be the influence you want to create in your world.

  • February 18, 2020 - The Awakening of Women in Financial Markets. Guest speaker: Diane-Laure Arjaliès, Assistant Professor, Managerial Accounting and Control, General Management & Sustainability, Ivey Business School. Professor Arjaliès is a co-author of the book Chains of Finance: How Investment Management is Shaped.

    The presentation will investigate the increase of non-financial concerns in the financial markets over the past decade. After exploring the reasons for the growing integration of environmental, social and governance criteria into investment management processes, it will reflect on the novel role of women in this endeavour. Not only women tend to be the ones behind such inclusion, but they are also pushing for a novel form of feminist capitalism. Yet such a goal remains hard to achieve.

    The evening will also include the Annual BPW International Candle Lighting Ceremony honouring BPW's historical memories, our accomplishments and celebrate today’s achievements.
