Program Description: 

Today, women remain a minority in filling key financial roles. The irony is that women have been some of the earliest pioneers in currency, investing, banking, and finance.  Deirdre Nectow, managing director at Cambridge Associates, will look at today’s reality and also back in time to examine some of the ways pioneering women were instrumental to the development of banking and capital markets, starting as far back as ancient times.  We will also end with a current case study of one financial firm in which women have a much more prominent role and we will examine how that came to be.
