Description

You're invited to attend our special event: Celebrating gender diversity – life and career lessons from successful women in finance.

Brought to you by UTS Business School, in partnership with and supported by UTS alumnus Mr Recep Peker, Research Director at Investment Trends, this is a great opportunity for our aspiring future leaders to hear from women who are leading the way in the financial sector.

One of the UTS Business School's top priorities is the promotion of equity and increased support for women in management. On this occasion, we have the great pleasure of welcoming three inspirational female leaders to share their perspective and experience of gender diversity in the financial sector, provide valuable insight around the life and career choices women often have to make in order to succeed – and to encourage more women to follow in their footsteps.

Moderated by Professor Robynne Quiggin, Associate Dean (Indigenous Leadership and Engagement) UTS Business School and Law Faculty, we welcome Samantha Clarke, Co-Founder and CEO, Advice RegTech, Sally Loane, CEO, Financial Services Council and Catriona Noble, Managing Director, ANZ.

All guests are invited to join us for refreshments following the speakers' presentations
