Women in Banking and Finance
Established in 1980, Women in Banking and Finance (WIBF), is a not-for-profit women’s network run by members, for members. It is dedicated to increasing opportunity for individual members to network, learn and advise each other at every stage of their career – from graduate to boardroom – through WIBF’s programme of workshops and events. WIBF aims to improve diversity in banking and finance as a sector by working closely with our corporate members, which include Barclays, Santander and Citi. WIBF is a UK-wide network with branches in London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Bristol and Birmingham and Manchester.
WIBF’s programme of events is closely aligned to the aims of individual and corporate members. The WIBF Mentoring and Networking programmes run alongside the Personal Excellence Programme which delivers monthly workshops on in-demand topics, such as team-leadership and resilience in the workplace, while the Women on Boards stream is directed at those women who want to gain the skills needed to move into the boardroom.
The annual Women in Banking and Finance Awards for Achievement are prestigious awards which highlight the inspirational work going on every day in pursuit of diversity and excellence in the banking and finance sector. The number of nominations for the WIBF Awards for Achievement continues to grow year on year, a source of celebration for WIBF and for the industry. Each year the WIBF Awards for Achievement reach more people and encourage more involvement with WIBF’s ambition of greater diversity and greater opportunity within the industry.
