WPF’s Trailblazing Women

In Honor of Women’s History Month, Women in Public Finance recognizes all the trailblazing women who have broken down barriers and paved the way for women in our industry. Throughout the month of March, we are spotlighting a number of these inspiring and impactful women.

Women in Public Finance Founders

Four women in Chicago had a vision in 1997. Their vision is our reality. In this, the first in our series for Women’s History Month to commend our sisters in the public finance industry who have been willing to take a risk and carve a path for the rest of us, we recognize the founders of Women in Public Finance.

What started as a desire to find a way to provide support for women in the public finance industry has grown into an organization with 20 chapters from across the country and more than 800 members.  The opportunities provided by the organization they started for networking, education, and personal growth, as well as mutual respect and support, are invaluable.

“Thank you” doesn’t seem like a strong enough sentiment and so we will let the continued growth and success of the organization and our members be the true testament to the vision of our founders.
