Event description

Description

Sustainable Finance


Women in Sustainability (WINS) exists to help women flourish in careers that are building a sustainable world.

Creating a career whilst staying true to your passion and values is not always easy and yet many of us are driven by our values and a common purpose to create sustainable future.

This event will focus on Sustainable Finance and the current state of play in this burgeoning sector. This will be a friendly, informal and highly interactive session in which our speakers will facilitate conversations about the challenges and opportunities in this area, and share their wealth of experience.

Our speakers are; Mark McCue, Director at McCue Wealth Management Ltd, Claire Kelly, Associate Partner Practice at St. James’s Place Wealth Management and Debbie Mitchell, The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

They will be sharing their insights and tips on how to invest or to get investment and how to make impactful decisions in both our home and business lives.

In true ‘Women in Sustainability’ form, expect honest conversations, inspiration and new perspectives, alongside opportunities to connect & build your relationships, as well as work on what you need in order to flourish in your career creating a sustainable world.

We’ll explore the interdisciplinary nature and social, environmental and economic benefits of sustainable finance and investment. Closer to home, we will be considering the sustainable investment decisions we make in our daily home and business lives and the different approaches we can take to assess and implement these important decisions; giving us new strategies and perspectives

Adding to the mix the usual 'Women in Sustainability' approach of getting you connecting and working together, this will be a highly engaging session that you simply can't afford to miss!

As ever there will be time and space to reflect and think about how this might shape our own approach to work and career. There will be the space and opportunity to network and share experiences with colleagues. We look forward to seeing you there!
