How to get involved / Forums

Supported by the Government of Ireland, Ireland’s Women in Finance Charter underpins the financial services industry’s ambition to see increased participation of women at all levels, including junior, middle and senior management, leadership and board roles within financial services organisations based in Ireland. 

The Charter, guidance note and templates were developed by industry to assist firms foster and harness the talent and experience of all women in financial services, which is crucial in developing a strong pipeline of talent. This will lead to greater diversity of thought, experience, and leadership styles in decision-making processes, for the economic benefit of the business and the wider community as a whole. The Charter was officially launched on the 27 April by Minister Sean Fleming with over 40 early signatories.  For more information on the Charter and how a firm can sign up, please click here or contact info@fsi.ie
