CFA Societies, FPA Chapters and industry groups around the world have joined efforts to further our shared vision of inclusion and diversity in capitalism. This collaboration was created to demonstrate the commitment of the global finance community to inclusion and diversity, and to support the advancement and development of female leaders of all backgrounds. 

This is a global grassroots campaign:

  • To empower female professionals across all facets of the finance industry
  • To establish a broad-based community and share resources to promote our shared vision 
  • To create demand for diversity

We believe that inclusion and diversity will allow our industry to achieve better investment outcomes-- but more importantly, we believe that it will better serve our diverse society. 

The inclusion conversation has never been more urgent, and the reality remains that there are few female and diverse professionals in senior leadership roles. As a result, these professionals often lack the natural mentorship and sponsorship that tends to take place at the middle and senior levels, necessitating that they work harder to establish their own support network. Our global collaboration intends to fulfill that need. 

Women, as the minority in the finance industry globally, are the universal diversifier.

By utilizing virtual programming and our global network, our community facilitates a geography-agnostic exchange of ideas, resources and best practices to amplify and enhance the diversity dialogue, wherever it is taking place.

We aid each of our members in their personal career journey, through professional development and networking opportunities. In time, we hope that our efforts will both inspire and expand the female and diverse talent pipeline into the investment industry, as well as support their success.

Together, alongside our like-minded supporting organizations, our collaboration demonstrates the commitment of the global finance industry to inclusion and diversity, while providing high-caliber programming, cross-regional networking and professional development opportunities for our shared membership around the world. 

Our collaboration:

  • Creates a unique WIM Original program series that provides exceptional professional development guidance and showcases talented, diverse female leaders 
  • Co-markets high quality I&D programming created by our participating societies to bring added visibility to the featured speakers and the societies who host them
  •  Showcases and amplifies across our global platform the I&D efforts of our participating societies, to aid their success and build momentum for those initiatives at the local, regional and global level
  •  Offers valuable networking opportunities for our global base of finance professionals of all backgrounds
  •  Provides young professionals of all backgrounds access to critical mentorship and career guidance through internship opportunities and mentor programs 
  • Supports the development, hiring and advancement of the diverse talent pipeline

Our grassroots campaign has captured hearts and minds across the global finance network, and leaders around the world have dedicated their talents, time and endless passion to our shared vision. Our global collaboration comprises of organizations across the the US, Canada, Caribbean, EMEA and Latin America.

Together, we aim to enhance and amplify the I&D efforts of our respective societies at the local level, while sharing resources and information to build a truly global community around this important dialogue. Participating CFA Societies and FPA Chapters alongside Collaborative WIM believe that we can achieve more by working in conjunction, rather than in isolation

Join FPA MI: HELP! I'm out of Control Before my First Cup of Coffee 

Managing your day…we all seek to do that at work and at home but it gets away from us the minute we get out of bed in the morning. The truth is, as women, we are our own worst enemy when it comes to living our lives. You sabotage your ability to be productive by running through life, never taking time to figure out how you’d like to LIVE your life. You have the tools to succeed but because life moves so fast, you don’t have time to employ them properly or even at all. This session will have you “pause” long enough to discover the right steps to take to get out of your own way and live the life you always dreamed of…AND enjoying that first cup of coffee!

Some possible outcomes for the session include but are not limited to:

  • Discovering Needs and Values
  • Creating your ideal week
  • Resetting expectations
  • Setting boundaries
  • Planning your day
  • Prioritizing your tasks
  • Dealing with interruptions
  • Avoiding procrastination
  • Taking control of your email
  • Saying NO with grace

11:00 pm to 12:30 pm | VIRTUAL
*Cost:  $15/FPA MI Members and $40/Non-FPA MI Members 
*The first 15 FPA Members who register will receive a "complimentary" copy of Patty's book entitled "But I Might Need it Someday".
