As the City continues its positive evolution, with more firms than ever putting issues such as gender equality and inclusion higher on their agendas, a number of trailblazing women are leading pioneering initiatives and creating new ways of working and thinking to bring about significant change both in and outside of their workplaces.
In this year’s Inspirational Women in the City listing, Brummell Magazine celebrates 30 women who are leaders in their respective fields, demonstrating dynamic leadership within their companies and beyond. As well as being innovative thought leaders, overcoming challenges and inspiring others to do the same, these women are driving momentum and achieving remarkable results.
The distinguished judging panel, made up of respected industry professionals from diverse financial sectors, had a difficult task in selecting the final list, applying the rigorous shortlisting criteria. While the women in the listing are from a variety of working backgrounds – from larger corporates to groundbreaking start-ups – each is a shining example of how determination, drive and entrepreneurial spirit are at the core of business success at all levels.
