Collaborative Women in Investment Management (WIM) Initiative

A Global Alliance to Further Inclusion & Diversity


CFA Society Italy is proud to support the Collaborative Women In Investment Management (WIM) Initiative, a global alliance of CFA Societies, FPA Chapters and industry groups who have joined efforts to further our shared vision of inclusion and diversity in capitalism.

This collaboration includes about 90 supporting organizations across the US, Canada, Caribbean, EMEA and Latin America to demonstrate the commitment of the finance community to inclusion and diversity, and to support the advancement and development of female leaders of all backgrounds.

Together, Collaborative WIM and its supporting organizations have created a unique program to empower female professionals across all facets of the finance industry, to support the advancement and development of female leaders of all backgrounds, as well as to celebrate their accomplishments and to establish a broad-based community and share resources to promote our shared vision of inclusion, diversity and equity in capitalism.
