New FWSF Thought Leadership Program

We are pleased to announce a new thought leadership program to support women in finance and financial services. What exactly is “thought leadership”? Is it just the latest corporate buzzword? It may be a buzzword to some, but as Business News Daily defines it, “Thought leaders are seen as trustworthy, go-to authorities among industry colleagues and peers.” (7/20/16) With the caliber of FWSF’s members, we believe FWSF can be a strong voice on women’s career issues in the financial press, in various industry-specific publications, and of course, through social media. With over 60 years of history in helping to advance the careers of women, we are well positioned to write on contemporary issues and trends.
