Treasury Today Women in Treasury initiative
Treasury Today’s Global Women in Treasury initiative recognises the importance of women in the corporate treasury profession and creates a means for women in treasury to communicate with one another; learn from each other and network in order to help each other.
Whilst the treasury profession remains largely male-dominated, there are remarkable women enjoying remarkable careers. The Women in Treasury (WiT) series recognises female innovators in the corporate treasury profession.
Women need to be much more visible in their roles, both inside and outside of their organisation. While women are notoriously bad at promoting themselves, this initiative aims to help bridge the gap. We profile female leaders in Treasury Today and Treasury Today Asia. Each article looks at professional development and career-defining moments, as well as providing advice to those just starting out in the profession.
At the end of last year, Treasury Today's Women in Treasury initiative was included within the Global Diversity List 2021, a definitive register of organisations and individuals that demonstrate an unswerving commitment to the values of equality, diversity and inclusion. Thank you to all the women, non-binary people and allies who have lent their time, support and voices to this platform! This accolade allows us to continue growing and developing our initiative.
We run an annual global study of women working in the treasury profession to build up a picture of the profiles and careers of women from junior roles to Group Treasurer/Financial Director/CFO positions. The Women in Treasury Global Study 2022 is now closed and findings will be published in September.
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 being profiled please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Or if you have a female treasury professional in mind that has inspired you in your career, please let us know. If you have any comments or ideas for furthering this initiative please do not hesitate to contact us.
Finally, please can we draw your attention to our new interactive WITHIN HUB, your new 24/7 portal to access the community and find the resources and tools that you need. Our chat feature and forum allow you to ask questions of each other discreetly and to support and offer advice to others. From the interactive chat section to our guides and resources, Within is your one stop. It’s your space to tell us what you need, from a mentor, to a mentee, to a business or development connection. Come and sign up to the hub and explore what it has to offer.
We would also encourage Woman of the Year nominations within our Adam Smith Awards Asia programme. Nominations close September 5th.
