This year’s highly acclaimed Women in Treasury New York Forum took place on Thursday 10th October at the historic Roosevelt Hotel in midtown Manhattan. This was the fourth year of this hugely successful event which is attended by women and men from corporations of all sectors and sizes, together with their banking and technology partners from across the US. This year’s New York Forum was attended by over 150 people.
The Forum opened at noon with a busy pre-lunch reception, providing a great platform for attendees to form new industry contacts. During the reception, an informative presentation showcased some of the key findings of our Women in Treasury Global Study 2019, proudly supported by State Street Global Advisors. The guests then moved to the ballroom for a three course lunch, during which the inspirational panel discussion took place with our leading industry speakers. The discussion was moderated by Sophie Jackson, Joint Publisher & Head of Strategic Content, Treasury Today Group, who facilitated an insightful debate on some of the topics highlighted by the respondents of this year’s study.
