Event Details

Watch out for our CEO, Alison Cottrell speaking at the 6th edition of the Annual Women in Finance Summit organised by City & Financial Global and held in partnership with 20-First on the 5th of July 2022.


  • Women vs global challenges – Climate change, geopolitical threats and AI. Are we going to see a shift in the capitalist model and what effect will it have on women in the financial services industry? How does the rise in global warming, the Ukraine crisis and intelligent algorithms impact women everywhere?
  • COVID as a change driver for women, couples and businesses. Managing dual careers in a flexible working and hybrid environment – how to drive transformation and avoid the ‘gigification’ of our lives? Does this mark the beginning of the end of the work-family divide and more focus on integrating personal and professional lives?
  • CEOs who “get” gender, generational and ethnic balance – and deliver it. Leadership accountability for diversity – are we recognising the size and nature of the transformation required to deliver a diverse and inclusive financial services industry? The challenge of multi-stakeholder engagement and buy-in
  • Update on the Women in Finance Charter and the gender pay gap reporting initiative. Practical recommendations to help businesses accelerate their progress towards gender diversity
  • A special focus on tapping the benefits of generational balance in your organisation. The Midlife rethink; laying out a new roadmap for living, loving and working through life’s “4 Quarters”
  • Getting ethnic diversity right at all levels – the key actions for securing senior and mid-level management commitment (and skills) to tackle ethnic inequality
  • How far and how fast has the financial services industry been progressing on gender balance and ethnic diversity in the last year? How can gender and ethnic balance be seen as a competitive edge rather than a compliance issue? How to keep momentum on the outcomes and has gender lost to ethnicity?
  • Practical suggestions and success stories to reverse the loss of female talent and rebalance recruitment processes. Building the next generation of women leaders in a time of rapid-fire geopolitical, technological and social change – “female” skills never more necessary than now
