In October 2017 The Treasury Committee launched a new inquiry into Women in Finance focusing on HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter and the progress it has made. The Committee will seek to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services industry and will examine the value to financial firms of having greater gender imbalance. It will also scrutinize the impact of Government and financial regulators as role models for good gender diversity practices.

City & Financial Global is organising the 2nd edition of the Annual Women in Finance Summit taking place in Central London on 22nd March 2018. This high-profile forum builds on the success of the previous editions of the Women in Business and the Women in Finance summits, which both attracted 250+ senior delegates from across business, government and the regulatory community, both here and overseas.

The conference will examine the role of the Government and financial regulators in addressing the imbalance of seniority between genders and determine what can be done to identify the barriers to women entering and progressing in the financial services sector. 

It will also review the progress made since the launch of the HM Treasury’s Charter and assess the impact the Charter has had on signatory companies, the benefits they are realising and the challenges the firms face in meeting their Charter commitments.

The forum’s interactive format will offer attendees an opportunity to have a diverse and well-informed dialogue about the most effective ways of getting men to join in their efforts to address the gender imbalance at all levels of their organisation, as well as making sure that gender diversity remains high on the business agenda, despite all the other pressures firms are facing.

  • What is the UK Government’s strategy for ensuring that the potential of women in the boardroom and in the senior management of the financial services industry is being realised?
