Be a part of the conversation! Join us for our International Women's Day event, a solutions-oriented exploration of the challenges that women address as they work to have successful careers, particularly in the financial industry.

We focus on how to make changes – in the industry and in ourselves – to further women's careers. This event will feature keynote speaker Sallie Krawcheck, CEO and co-founder of Ellevest. Our keynote will be followed by interactive concurrent sessions and culminate with an inspiring panel discussion. All genders are welcome – colleagues, partners, spouses of women in finance and other careers are encouraged to join us for this important conversation!

KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Sallie Krawcheck's mission is to help women reach their financial and professional goals (or, put more bluntly, to get more money into the hands of women), thus enabling them to live better lives and unleashing a positive ripple effect for our families, our communities and our economy. She is the CEO and co-founder of Ellevest, an innovative financial company, by women for women. Ellevest is one of the fastest growing digital investment platforms and has been named #24 on CNBC's top 50 "Disruptor" list, #14 on LinkedIn's 50 "Most Sought-After Startups" (#2 in New York), and one of Entrepreneur Magazine's Top 100 Brilliant Ideas. Krawcheck is also Chair of Ellevate Network, a 135K-strong global professional women's network; and she is the best-selling author of "Own It: The Power of Women at Work."

Krawcheck, one of the few executives to find success in large complex companies and as a startup CEO, is widely recognized as one of the most influential women in business. She has been recognized by Inc. as a "Top Female Founder," called "The Last Honest Analyst" by Fortune magazine, was named the seventh most powerful woman in the world by Forbes, was # 9 on Fast Company's list of the "100 Most Creative People in Business and is considered one of the "Most Influential People in ESG Investing" by Barron's."
