FWSF’s First Interest Group: Book Club

At the beginning of 2016, FWSF launched the Book Club as the first Interest Group. The Interest Groups were created to give members an opportunity to meet and form deeper relationships with women in the FWSF community. The organization is already made up of many professionals that care about seeing more women succeed in the finance industry, but there are a lot of other hobbies within the FWSF.
