Financial Executive Women (FEW) is proud to announce its newest corporate sponsorship with IRESS, Australia’s leading supplier of unified technology solutions to the financial markets, wealth management, superannuation and mortgage sectors.
FEW was developed to provide a structured Career Advocacy Program along with day to day support for women within Financial Services to ensure members have all the support they need to progress forward in their career. FEW members obtain experience, guidance and support from more experienced members to help them achieve their full potential. FEW’s positive progression of women is supported by several of Australia’s major financial institutions.
FEW’s partnership with IRESS resonates with IRESS’ Managing Director of Wealth Management for Australia and New Zealand, Tizzy Vigilante, who was recently awarded IT Innovator of the Year at Money Management 2016 Women in Financial Service Awards.
“FEW presents a great opportunity for us to provide what is a very talented group of women at IRESS with a broader network of experience and support. This partnership is an important part of our career advancement offer to our people and also helps encourage more women to have a successful career in the fintech sector,” Ms Vigilante said.
Founder of Financial Executive Women, Judith Beck said ‘Leaders like Tizzy are a great example of what FEW is about, positive progression of women through day to day programs that will help leaders and future leaders obtain the skills they need to progress in today’s work environment. FEW is also focused on making sure that future leaders are seeing the achievements women like Tizzy are achieving so they have role models they can relate to. In the FEW Advocacy program, members like Tizzy are Advocates to the less experienced members. We also have many other programs that are available to members and having IRESS on board will enhance what we are achieving’.
