Financial Alliance for Women All-Stars Academy

The Financial Alliance for Women’s All-Stars Academy is the first knowledge-building immersion program dedicated to increasing the capabilities of the financial services community to target women as a distinct market. The program complements and builds upon our world-class peer learning activities, featuring experienced guest lecturers from member banks with thriving Women’s Market programs who offer their expertise on a variety of subjects related to developing and implementing a holistic Women’s Market strategy and leadership development.

Participants gain an understanding of the key elements of a Women’s Market strategy and best practices for supporting implementation. Through a highly practical and interactive approach, each participant develops a plan for executing and evaluating next steps for their programs. As a follow-on to this course, participants also have the option of joining our Mentoring Program to form a cohort to maintain network support.

Enrollment is open to senior financial services leaders – including managers, directors and department heads – with responsibility for new business development, marketing or customer segments. The program is ideal for organizations at the early stage of Women’s Market program development as well as those that are seriously considering introducing a program.

The first All-Stars Academy of 2019 was held in Cairo, Egypt, March 24-28. Our next Academy will be held in Quito, Ecuador, January 20-24, hosted by Alliance member Banco Pichincha. Please note this is a change from the original November 2019 dates.
