This year’s study will close next month and we are looking for your help as we gather as many respondents as possible. The study looks at those key areas which map progress including career progression, access to mentorship and sponsorship, instances of prejudice and discrimination and confronting bias.
Treasury Today’s Women in Treasury and Allies Study is, for the second time this year open to all those working in or with corporate finance. The study has been the main source of data for the women in treasury initiative since its inception a decade ago. We use this data to map progress in the industry and to explore the areas that remain challenging for our community. Hot on the heels of Women in Treasury being included within the 2021 Global Diversity List, we want 2022’s study and forums to continue to break down boundaries and promote positive progress in corporate finance.
In 2022 we are delighted to be on the road again hosting our Women in Treasury Forums across the world and at the heart of our conversations we want to include you and your experiences via the data set from this year’s study. The more of you who take the time to complete this year’s study the more comprehensive and revealing the results will be. So please share your insights and experiences with us and encourage as many of your colleagues or friends in the industry to do the same.
The Women in Treasury initiative also incorporates its own award in Treasury Today’s Adam Smith Awards, which we have given this year to our Woman of the Year 2022, Lisa Chan, Director Global Treasury Operations at Airbnb and our Highly Commended Woman of the Year 2022, Jayna Bundy, General Manager, Global Treasury & Financial Services at Microsoft. Jayna shared her thoughts with us on why you should get involved and the impact of the Women in Treasury platform.
The study should take no more than ten minutes to complete and as mentioned is open for all genders and all those working in and with corporate finance. We need your help to ensure we gain as full an understanding as possible of the issues facing our industry. Looking forward to seeing your responses and to discussing these issues together at our upcoming forums and digital debates.
