LWF board member, Emily Cox, announced Woman of the Year

On 29th June, members of the LWF board attended the inaugural Women in Finance awards- Europe's largest diversity-led event in the sector. LWF was a partner for the event,  board member Jane Karczewski was a judge and we were honoured that our new patron, Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons, Eleanor Laing was able to join us on the night- her first non parliamentary event post the general election.

As well as representing LWF, we are delighted to announce that our board member Emily Cox was awarded Woman of The Year.

For the flagship awards category of the night, the judges chose Emily Cox. Emily stood out as a game changer for all of her work on the Gadhia Report, and furthering the momentum of the Women in Finance Charter. Emily received multiple nominations from her colleagues at Virgin Money and committee member from Founders4Schools, a non-profit organisation that connects school students with inspiring entrepreneurs, placing diversity first.

 There is a general perception that women in top positions are 'superwomen' - a description viewed by many women as unattainable. The truth is, every woman - just like every man should have the opportunity to rise to the top of an organisation and be a role model through talent and hard work. 
Emilio Saracho, Deputy Chief Executive Officer, JPMorgan EMEA

 I enjoyed Kay’s presentation and many of her comments and insights resonated with me. I appreciate JPMorgan’s sponsorship of the organisation and the access it provides to events like today. I’ve already signed up for the breakfast on the 23rd March. I’m looking forward to driving my bus! “

 I thought the event last night was excellent. And really quite liberating! I regretted asking a difficult question around liability as perhaps that's something we'd need to look at on a case by case basis per appointment. Thanks again for the effort of putting the programme together
