Quick Find:
ICMA Women's Network
 
  • Opens up a geographically broad women’s network grounded firmly within the existing ICMA structure
  • Fosters the pipeline into management by focusing on career strategy
  • Provides an impartial and open forum to discuss issues relevant to professional women
         
ICMA has developed the ICMA Women’s Network (IWN) with the aim of pursuing the three goals noted above. Now involving over 500 people and growing all the time, it is on the same principles which ICMA differentiates itself in the European Capital Market that the ICMA Women’s Network differentiates itself from existing initiatives representing women in finance; as a cross-border, networking hub, with the potential to bring together like minded efforts of member firms. For stakeholders and participants, it provides access to a geographically-broad but ideologically-focused network, grounded firmly within a meaningful industry structure.

IWN is aimed at professional women in the debt capital market in the intermediate stages of their career progression; the ‘pipeline’ into management/senior management. It also supports and aligns with the goals of ICMA members who wish to retain and promote women in their businesses.
