Women in Fund Finance Meeting Recaps Past Year of ‘Wit & Wisdom’ and Looks Ahead
February 28, 2020 | Issue No. 66
By Kristin Castellanos

In 2019, Women in Fund Finance (WFF) launched the Wit and Wisdom Program, a series of events designed to connect rising young stars in the fund finance industry with senior women for discussions on issues affecting the next generation of female fund finance professionals. 

Last year, WFF hosted five events focusing on a range of issues, including networking in male-dominated fields, working through female stigmas and stereotypes, career negotiations, diversity and inclusion and personal advocacy.

On February 20, Wells Fargo graciously donated space for an interactive panel dialogue to recap the key lessons and takeaways from the 2019 series and to discuss what individuals and companies can do to continue to promote equality and inclusivity in our industry. The evening kicked off with Dee Dee Sklar welcoming the attendees and then a lively discussion on the key themes that were covered in the events. The level of audience participation was not only a testament to how well the topics resonated with the audience but the high caliber of the rising women and men in our industry.

WFF will continue this initiative into 2020 and encourages all of our industry participants to consider what we can do to attract and promote a more diverse talent pool across our industry. Want to get involved? Click here to contact WFF.
