As we carry on into the latter half of 2020, it is vital that we continue to stay connected, supportive, and engaged with our networks.
Here at Boston Women in Finance, while that connection might look a bit different than what we are used to, the quality of our programming and the engagement of our community are better than ever.
Here’s are a few pieces that our members and friends have to look forward to this season with BWF:

*Due to COVID-19 safety protocols for offices, indoor gatherings, and restaurants, Boston Women in Finance will continue to meet virtually throughout the remainder of 2020. It is our hope that we'll be able to get back to our in-person events in 2021.
Members-Only Connections and Opportunities
As an added benefit for our members, we are planning an exclusive monthly series of virtual programs, including:
Learning Discussions: Starting this month, we're going to set up a post-program discussion, exclusive for BWF members, to come together online and share their thoughts and takeaways from our public events. Our schedule is coming soon, so please stay tuned!
Coffees and Cocktails with BWF: Also starting this month will be an alternating series of coffees or cocktails with BWF! Whether you're an early-bird or a night owl, join us every month for an online members-only get together - we'll host trivia games, icebreakers, and any other kind of conversation you'd like to have. We promise plenty of laughs with a group of driven, motivated leaders just like you.
New Opportunities to Expand Your Network
Along with partnering with other financial and executive associations in the Boston area, Boston Women in Finance has also started a formal partnership program, designed to bring you even more opportunities to network, support, and inspire one another.
We’re thrilled to announce our first annual partner, PNC Bank, who has already invited our members to a series of virtual programs the week of September 14th as part of their 10th Annual Women in Business Week.
Diversity and inclusion, fighting financial fraud, wellness activities, and more, will be discussed. To learn more, or to register for this great series of events, please go here.
Giving Back To Our Community
Over the summer, Boston Women in Finance launched its first annual Inspire Scholarship, designed to inspire, motivate and elevate minority women in their pursuit of a career in the financial industry.
The recipients of this scholarship will be awarded a one-year membership in BWF and free attendance at BWF events during that year (September 2020 – June 2021) and assigned mentors.
If you know of a candidate you’d like to nominate, or would like to learn more about our scholarship, please go here.
Of course, there’s so much more that Boston Women in Finance has been working on, and we can’t wait to share it all with you. On behalf of the entire BWF Board, thank you for choosing to be a part of our community, and thank you for continuing to support and inspire one another. It’s an honor to serve all of you!
We look forward to continuing the discussion with you throughout the 2020 and 2021 season. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best,
The Boston Women in Finance Team
