ICMA Women's Network Virtual Event - Connecting the generations: a conversation between Allegra Berman & Wura Olatunbosun, 22 October 2020
With many of us working remotely during these challenging conditions, it is harder than ever to share knowledge and expertise. But inter-generational connectivity remains extremely important as it can help mould positive attitudes and inspire the upcoming generation in the next steps of their careers, and can introduce fresh perspectives and different working cultures.

The ICMA Women's Network hosted a virtual conversation between Allegra Berman, Global Head of Institutional Sales, Markets & Securities Services, HSBC and Wura Olatunbosun, Associate, Dentons. Allegra and Wura shared experiences, exploring how the challenges facing women in finance have changed over time, citing shifts in culture and expectations, the importance of adaptability and resilience, and what the future may hold as the different generations weather the storm together and prepare for what’s next.

Con la colaboración de Bankia y Santander

Nos referimos a la resiliencia como una cualidad necesaria para lograr el éxito y en tiempos cambiantes como los que vivimos esta cualidad es cada vez más importante. ICMA Women’s Network organizó una sesión de análisis y networking durante la cual profundizamos en el concepto de resiliencia y descubrimos qué herramientas tenemos para desarrollarla y cómo puede ayudarnos a alcanzar nuestros objetivos. Continuamos con un panel de profesionales de la industria que compartieron con nosotros sus experiencias y cómo la resiliencia les ha ayudado en sus carreras.
