Women in Consumer Finance
Because your career matters, and so does the satisfaction of all your high-potential female employees
An event for women at ALL levels, in the context of your professional industry. If you work in any role at a lender, creditor, collection agency, law firm, technology or service provider, or regulator, this event is for you.
This is not about compliance or best practices. It's about women, about the common professional challenges we face, and about how to tell our own career story. So we can build truly meaningful connections and enjoy the kind of professional development we all could use, no matter how experienced we are.
Our 4th annual event will be in-person in Scottsdale, AZ December 6-8, 2021, and virtual -anywhere you are- December 13-15, 2021.
