Women in Finance Panel: Breaking Barriers - Miami

In collaboration with our Academic Partners, CFA Institute & CAIA, we bring you...

A professional panel that brings female professionals working in different areas of finance to share their personal and professional experiences as women in finance.

 Three outstanding women who have achieved success through differerent career paths will talk about their journey and accomplishments.

The panel aims to uncover the numerous career opportunities available within the finance industry and pinpoint their specific characteristics. The event will also focus on discussions around the most prevalent topics affecting women in these industries. After the panel discussion, attendees will have an exclusive networking opportunity with our speakers. 

 

Some guideline questions for this Finance Roundtable discussion are:

  • “Success in finance does not depend on gender”. Do you think that a woman in finance has equal chances with a man? If so, why are there few women in finance?
  • What challenges women could be facing in their finance career and how to conquer them?

Some people say being a woman is a disadvantage in finance sector and some others say it´s an advantage. So, being a female has a double effect ?
