Committee Co-Chairs Jacqueline Lee and Yai Vargas
The Emerging Leaders Committee’s two primary objectives include:
- Enhancing Members’ skill sets in networking with their peers. These “horizontal” relationships are then supplemented by the Committee’s second objective:
- Skill enhancement seminars that focus on the development and practice of a professional skill set through lecture, role playing and other interactive procedures
Committee Co-Chairs Diana Merenda and Alana McNichol
This Committee provides support for women entrepreneurs through group meetings, networking and special events. FWA entrepreneurs have a support system for those who do not have the same resources available as corporate America/more established businesses.
The Entrepreneurs Committee has also featured successful funding events related to angel investing and crowd funding, and considering the ever-changing funding landscape resulting from the new Jobs Act, the committee is likely to sponsor similar events in the future.
All FWA members are welcome to get involved.
Committee Co-Chairs Janet Handal, Cornelia Levy-Bencheton and Aly Liu
This committee develops and shares programs on technology subjects of interest to those in financial services.
Professional Services Perspectives
Committee Co-Chairs Jennifer Delgado, Anne Halpern, and Sareena Sawhney
Helping women to realize the immense benefits related to networking and being a member of the Financial Women’s Association (FWA), the Professional Services Liaison works closely with individuals primarily in the legal and accounting spaces through co-sponsoring events designed to spark the interests of lawyers, accountants and FWA Members employed in other related fields as well.
In addition to planned FWA events, this committee hosts quarterly dinners with Members to foster networking and greater involvement in the committee and holds periodic conference calls to prepare for upcoming events.
