Description

Please join us at our next private dinner ‘Empowering today’s women for the women of tomorrow’ with VisionFund International’s Social Performance Director, Johanna Ryan.

All over the world, women are igniting change and shaping society for future generations. VisionFund witnesses this transformation across different contexts where women begin the microfinance process as borrowers, and work their way up to becoming loan officers in their communities.

Join WAM as we debate how the microfinance industry can continue to strengthen and equip women and mothers through offering financial services. Explore VisionFund’s mission to sustainably equip women to increase their incomes and provide for their families. Learn what led the organisation to cast a bold vision to financially empower two million women and create brighter futures for six million children annually by 2021.

Where: Brasserie Blanc (Chancery Lane), 119 Chancery Ln, London WC2A 1PP

When: 31 January 2017

Price: £26 for a two course menu with a glass of house wine

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to seeing you!

About Johanna Ryan

In VisionFund, everyone is motivated to create hope for the most vulnerable children in the world. That is why we are here. As Director of Social Performance, Johanna has to find ways to measure and evaluate VisionFund’s products and services, to make sure our work is focused on the right elements that will create not just hope, but real transformation of communities and individuals. She also has to find ways for colleagues to inspire one another, to remember that all our efforts are focused on real, individual children. But most importantly, Johanna must find ways to inspire our supporters and stakeholders who make VisionFund’s work possible.

With VisionFund since 2009, Johanna has had a mottled career that includes a stint as a tutor at Oxford and university lecturer in Texas, then 18 years in global banking operations. Throughout her career, Johanna has found the greatest reward in supporting colleagues to achieve their ambitions.
