Hear from and meet some of the most powerful and entrepreneurial women in finance.

Why should you attend?
This previously female-only event will be opened up to all in 2018.
Designed to build knowledge, insights, skills and an amazing business network, we invite everyone to be a part of the drive to get more women investing and working in the industry.
This year, we find out how women are transforming sections of the finance industry through innovation, technology and disruptive evolution. Our panellists debate topics such as whether we should create content and provide products specifically for women. We also discuss the Women In Finance Charter – why is it important, how can it be implemented and what do we hope to see in the future of the industry with the charter in place.
What's been said about WIT
"Very informative and valuable and very good panel too. Learnt some essential lessons in this session. Thank you!"
"10/10. The panel discussions were fantastic and very informative. Engaging, empowering and eye opening. Incredibly relatable content!"
"Fascinating info on entrepreneurs with this idea about 3 Olympic spikes. Professional - wanting to push for personalised, less investing focused communications."
"All areas gave me fuel for thought in both work and personal life. Lorna in particular made me think about both my team and my personal development."
The afternoon will share data, research, learnings and strategy from eight women who are building and developing financial products and services - and shaking it up along the way. -
An update on our female customers (and female non-customers!)
What are the latest data and insights on how women engage with the stock market and the world of investing? How can groups improve engagement and address some of the barriers such as attitude to risk, perceptions of affordability and a general sense that ‘this isn’t for me’?
Fireside chat: Anne Boden, CEO, Starling Bank
What does it take to start your own bank? How do you go from idea to reality and what type of confidence in yourself does that really take?
Panel discussion: should we create content and provide products specifically for women?
This session will draw from the experience of our ambassadors.
Section Two: Innovate
Sophie Bialaszewski, Head of Innovation, Lloyds Banking Group
What does it take to innovate from within a large corporation? How do you get internal people to think differently and apply this into their day-to-day? Some insights from Lloyds and how a big bank innovated for its customers.
Panel discussion: how and why we changed our business through innovation
Fireside chat: Emily Cox, Director of Public Affairs, Virgin Money
Emily led the Virgin Money team responsible for the Gadhia Review into the representation of women in senior managerial roles in the Financial Services Industry which had now been signed by 93 companies.
