sharing knowledge and celebrating the achievements of women in finance
The Women in Finance Awards initiative, presented by DiversityQ, provides a global platform to showcase success, resilience, innovation, and creativity within financial services, as well as shine a light on those promoting the importance of a more inclusive industry,
The UK awards, now in their fifth year, will celebrate advocates, role models and allies across the UK’s financial services industry who are working to spearhead real change. By continuing to identify new industry role models, we can inspire students and graduates, build a united community of change makers, and motivate professionals to continue their work across the finance landscape.

Over the years, representation of women in the UK financial services industry has improved; as of 2019, women made up 43% of the finance workforce. However, if we dig deeper into this representation, we see that there is much work to be done to achieve gender parity in the FS industry, where women make up only:
33% of all board positions in the UK’s FTSE 100 companies
20% of executive committee members in major financial services firms
15% of finance directors
12% of CFO roles globally
Less than 1 in 5 C-suite positions in Financial Services
The Women in Finance UK Summit will explore 4 key themes at the intersection of finance, diversity, equity & inclusion, and professional development:
- Creating a Forward-Thinking Future with Finance
- Widening Access to Financial Services
- Progress and Pitfalls for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Financial Services
- Professional Development at the Top
We invite delegates from around the world to join us on 3 November to be inspired, hear real-life case studies and connect with like-minded professionals. Be a part of a truly global movement as we continue to cover the most imminent finance topics, and create action from real diversity, equity, and inclusion conversations.
We look forward to seeing you there!
