WIN was a life-changing opportunity for me. I applied to the WIN Conference with two main objectives, both of which were satisfied beyond my imagination. My first goal was to meet and expand my network with women within the investment management field. The speakers held impactful presentations and offered sincere career advice and guidance. Secondly, the conference created a platform to apply to recruiting investment companies directly. As a result of my attendance at the WIN Conference, I secured three job interviews. I am looking forward to the event again this year!

"The WIN conference was a fantastic opportunity to hear and learn from distinguished keynote speakers and panelists. The stock pitch showcase was a key highlight and provided us with a valuable opportunity to benchmark ourselves to peer schools and to shine in front of judges and recruiters. The whole experience was invigorating and fulfilling. Not a single minute in the two-day event was boring!"
