Our Women Leaders Symposium, taking place on 7 September from 14:15 BST in Edinburgh, will feature contributions from women leaders in finance including Dr Hayat Sindi (The Institute for Quality), Dame Susan Rice (Financial Services Culture Board), Amy Clarke (Tribe Impact Capital) & more, including the NatWest Gender Network.

The symposium is part of the SDG Hive, a series of workshops and power roundtables being held with industry experts and global leaders alongside our flagship Ethical Finance Global 2022 summit.

Panellists will share their personal experiences and practical tips for other women breaking into the industry, and consider the status of both gender equality within the finance industry, and the role of the industry in supporting equality throughout wider society.
