Annual Report 2017

Connecting, championing and celebrating women in risk, regulation and compliance across 11 network cities around the globe in 2017.

A MESSAGE FROM

KIMBERLEY COLE

It was another year where we extended connections and continued to champion and celebrate you, our women in risk, regulation and compliance. Given the continued pace of change, you told us the Risky Women® network offers new perspectives and a way to share ideas, gain knowledge and identify business opportunities when you understand the regulatory landscape better through like-minded individuals.

We have continued to bring the network together with amazing speakers from our own Regulatory Intelligence Experts, such as Susannah Hammond and Julie DiMauro, to regulators and senior industry leaders including ASIC’s Cathie Armour, Nicola Wakefield Evans a Non-Executive Director at Macquarie, Lend Lease and AICD; Laura Ahto, CEO for BNY Mellon Europe; The Honorary Anna Bligh, CEO of Australian Bankers Association; Bank of Japan’s Yuko Kawai; and Alison Cottrell, CEO of the Banking Standards Board, to name just a few.

In this report you’ll find a summary of all our fantastic speakers and topics covered over the past year. You will also hear how we have continued to expand. 2017 saw our North America membership grow with three new cities: Chicago, Boston and New York! And we managed to have some fun with celebrations in Hong Kong and Singapore to mark our four-year anniversary.

I want to thank you all for your ongoing support and on behalf of my colleagues from around the world we look forward to continuing the conversation. 2018 brings new ideas, members and cities. Get ready and help us connect, celebrate and champion more women shaping the debate and the industry!

We would love to hear from you, as it’s the ideas that come from our Risky Women – and our male allies too – that have made this global network such a powerful community. Let us know your rants, your revelations and your reviews so we can continue to improve. Thank you again and we are excited for what’s ahead!
