Women in Finance Network
I established the Women in Finance Network Forum in 2013 specifically for women in the financial services industry. Women make fantastic financial planners because they connect with their clients in a unique way. However, one of the greatest challenges facing women in our industry is the need for support and guidance. My goal is to provide a neutral platform where women can meet each other, share experiences and offer each other support. Mutually beneficial professional relationships not only assist women financial planners, but the industry as a whole.
Members meet through organised events and are able to share experiences and learn from one other. The website also benefits members by creating an online community of financial planners where women are able to be mentored by more experienced colleagues and inspired by strong women role models in the industry.
The Women in Finance Forum posts regular articles of interest and invites comment on its Facebook page and LinkedIn. Invitations for the bi-annual events can also be found on these channels.
