Editorial

A date for your diary

Whilst the treasury profession remains largely male-dominated, there are remarkable women enjoying remarkable careers in the treasury sphere, not least in the Asia Pacific region. At Treasury Today, we believe that it is important to recognise female innovators in the corporate treasury profession, which is why we founded the Women in Treasury (WiT) initiative. It aims to bring female treasury practitioners together to share their experiences, challenges, successes and failures, as an inspiration for all operating in this field.

Following the resounding success of the inaugural Women in Treasury Forum in London last October, the first Women in Treasury Asia Forum takes place on Thursday 8th May 2014 at Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The Forum will commence at 12 noon with registration and a drinks reception, during which Angela Berry, Publisher of Treasury Today will present a summary of the key findings of our Women in Treasury Study. This will give you the opportunity to discover how female treasurers’ job prospects and pay compare to those of their male counterparts – and what the impact of having a family is on a treasurer’s career path.

We will then be holding a panel discussion moderated by Eleanor Hill, Editorial Director, Treasury Today Asia, followed by an open question and answer session. Areas of discussion will include the importance of making your voice heard within the organisation, as well as the role of mentors in promoting gender equality. This event will provide the rare chance for women in our industry to network, share their experiences and hear their peers discuss the key issues affecting their work within treasury.

A growing number of women are finding their voices and inspiring others to achieve progress – you can be one of them. If you are interested in attending the event, please contact our Head of Events, Lisa Bigley, lisa.bigley@treasurytoday.com, telephone: +44 (0)13 0462 9016.

In addition to the annual Women in Treasury Forum, we also run frequent Women in Treasury articles within Treasury Today Asia. If you would like to be profiled, or have a female treasury professional in mind that has inspired you in your career, please let us know by emailing editorial@treasurytoday.com.
