On the 2nd of June 2022 we organized our first INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE. On the 13th of October 2022, the day of our WO.MEN IN FINANCE NETWORKING EVENT, kindly hosted by one of our members Bnp Paribas Fortis at their new auditorium, was finally there! We had keynotes from excellent professional speakers Elke Jeurissen, Karen de Sousa Pesse, Wahida Salaam and 7 professional networking witnesses, true interactive workshops from each one of them and a complete networking exercise. We asked some attendees for their key take aways from the event and these were their answers (available on Youtube and our Instagram):
We are happy to have received very positive feedback on the event. Our goal was to help people, especially women, working in finance upgrade their networking skills and experience and to inspire people to be themselves. We can safely say thay we accomplished!

Survey Corporate Culture and Career M/F/X
Is there a link between the blocking factors on your career path and the culture of the sector or organisation you work in? Are you curious whether there is a link and what that link would look like? Is there a difference between women and men?
Wo·Men in Finance has, in collaboration with KU Leuven and Ghent University, done a large-scale anonymous survey of the Belgian financial sector to investigate this. Based on the responses of 1351 participants, we are happy to already share the first results (more to come later) with you.Click here to see the first results of the survey.
Wo.Men in Finance: that is also a cast-iron diversity charter
Financial institutions that sign the charter commit to measuring gender differences at every level of their company, to setting specific objectives for the company, to drawing up a diversity and inclusion plan and to appointing a person responsible for diversity.Read the charter here
And an annual report to measure progress
Where are the signatories today? Where do they want to go? And how will they use the charter to achieve their goals? These - and many other - questions are answered in the annual Women in Finance report.Download the full report here
