14 Jul 2021

In exciting news for WiBF, our CEO Jen Dalitz has been named as a finalist in the Women in Finance Awards category for Chief Executive Officer of the Year.

In being named as a Finalist in the Women in Finance Awards 2021 (not to be confused with the WiBF Awards Program), Jen has acknowledged all of the WiBF community and the work we do to make a tangible impact on gender diversity across the industry.

“I’m humbled to be nominated, and proud of WiBF’s contribution to the banking and finance industry over the past 21 years which of course has been a community effort involving our vast network of Corporate Members and countless hours put in by our Board and committees, all with the common goal of achieving gender balance in banking and finance.”

“It’s been particularly meaningful to support our Members right across Australia over the past 18 months through the pandemic, and provide a means for women and men to continue to connect and learn through our virtual events and programs, especially the women who research shows have been disproportionately impacted by the lockdown work-from-home and school-from-home restrictions“, she added.

The finalist list, which was announced on Tuesday, 13 July, features over 250 high-achieving professionals across 28 submission-based categories.

The Women in Finance Awards was founded by Momentum Media in 2017 to celebrate female leaders, role models and future champions within the financial industry.

This esteemed awards program provides a platform for remarkable women leading in their field to be acknowledged and celebrated for their outstanding achievements and contributions to the industry.

This year, the Women in Finance Awards not only celebrates the trailblazers of the industry, but also acknowledges the work of all women within the financial industry for their exceptional effort and dedication to clients during a year of constant change and challenge.

Annie Kane, editor of mortgages at Momentum Media, commented: “Since its inception, the whole concept of the Women in Finance Awards has been to champion and profile the amazing women working in financial services — an industry that has been, and remains, typically male-dominated.

“This year, we were thrilled to see that a record number of people nominated their friends, colleagues and peers for an award, demonstrating the growing outpouring of support for those leading the way — and a desire to create more female role models in this space.

“Congratulations to all of the finalists of the fifth annual Women in Finance Awards who are helping more Australians than ever to manage their financial situations, improve their financial literacy and grow their businesses.

“We look forward to announcing the winners at the annual event in September.”
