MARCH 2017   

WE NEWSLETTER

Dear WE Members, 

Women in ETFs has had a powerful start to 2017! It is so inspiring to see the leadership position this organization is taking globally. Among all of the great events and happenings globally during the quarter, we wanted to use this newsletter to highlight two of Women in ETFs flagship events that we sponsored: the 4th Annual Women in ETFs breakfast at Inside ETFs and the 3rd Annual Global Bell Ringings to celebrate International Women’s Day. I’m sure it will come as no surprise that both events were an immense success!    

In January, we kicked off the year at the 4th Annual Women in ETFs Breakfast at Inside ETFs.  We began the session by showcasing 2016 and reviewing the past years successes.  Jyoti Bhagavan and Asset.TV kindly produced a video to accompany the discussion which you can view here: WE 2016 Year in Review Video. The breakfast was over capacity as conference attendees arrived to hear Diana Tidd interview Suni Hartford, Head of North America Markets at Citigroup and Alice Handy, CEO and Founder of Investure. It was an inspiring session as they discussed their way to the top, risks they have taken and lessons learned. They also shared insights on the ETF industry. Thank you to Christine Berg for coordinating the event and to Jyoti Bhagavan, Kristen Carloni, Katrina Leyba, and Carol Springer for the Marketing support including the video.

Next we led the International Women’s Day celebrations that took place last week at 43 stock exchanges globally.  WE’s leadership with this project since 2014 has created a movement.  Our partnerships with The UN, The IFC, The Sustainable Sock Exchanges Initiative, and The World Federation of Exchanges provide us a strong leadership position to bring awareness to gender equality.  Not only are we a strong force within the ETF ecosystem, we are pacesetters within the global financial services industry in general.  The celebrations last week solidified our position as an organization with the power and collective skills to accomplish more than is expected.  Our call to action: be bold for change!

Diana and I are always inspired by the members who step up and ask to do more.  This year, we were so impressed with our new leadership teams across the global, regional and local level.  Coordinated events like this are not successful without collaboration, focus and positivity.

Each bell ringing and subsequent celebration took an enormous amount of coordination and effort.  We wanted to thank the WE volunteers who spent countless hours and valuable time to make the celebrations such a success and pushing Women in ETFs into a new frontier.
