WE EMEA | Dublin Kick-Off Event

 

 

On April 62016 we crossed another milestone in expanding our global reach and membership.

60 women and men connected to the ETF industry gathered at PwC offices in Dublin to kick-off activities in one of the largest centres for ETFs in Europe.

 Marie Coady, PwC EMEA ETF Leader, welcomed all guests and stressed the importance of empowering women for the benefit of business.

 Referencing the recent report “Empowering Productivity: Harnessing the Talents of Women in Financial Services” commissioned by the UK Treasury, Marie reiterated that gender diversity is not a “women’s issue” but a business issue which needs to be tackled on various fronts. The report recommends reporting, executive accountability and remuneration as starting points.

 
Isabell Moessler, Co-Head of WE EMEA and Executive Director – Head of Strategic Partnerships at ETF Securities followed by introducing Women in ETFs, outlining the vision and mission of the network and benefits to members. Isabell then went on a brief discourse about networking - why do it, who does it better (men or women), how to do it and how not to do it  - before all members of the audience got a chance to practice their networking skills.
 
 There was great energy and enthusiasm in the room and the event was featured next day on the front page of the Irish Independent.
 
 
 
 Currently we’re discussing next steps for the formation of a Dublin chapter and further activities and we would like to hear from anyone interested in getting involved.

 

WE would like to thank PwC for being the sponsor of the first WE event in Dublin and look forward to working together in the coming months.
