September Virtual General Meeting/Speaker Series

15 September @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We kick off our 2020-21 Speaker General Meetings thrilled to feature an accomplished woman sharing her story with us. Join us via Zoom to welcome Marisa Drew, Chief Sustainability Officer and Global Head Sustainability Strategy, Advisory and Finance, Credit Suisse. Long an outspoken advocate for gender parity at international symposia on the particular struggles women face in work-life balance, Ms Drew understands the challenges having successfully risen in one of the most male-centric marketplaces – Banking. She’ll share some “lean in” moments while introducing us to sustainable and impact investing – her specialist field, attracting a generation who seek more purposeful and responsible finance.

A graduate of the Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania, Ms Drew was first named in the Financial News Top 100 Most Influential Women in Finance in 2007 and annually to 2018. In 2013, Radio 4 featured her on Woman’s Hour when she was recognised by the BBC as one of the “Most Powerful Women in Britain”. We are thrilled a veteran of impressive panels from the World Bank to the Milken Institute accepted our invitation to address our own membership of impressive women!

“The people who are successful are usually those who are really dedicated and who have that passion.”
