Women in Finance Symposium

As I’ve discussed in the past, your career is closely tied to your financial health.  I try to go to networking events and professional panels whenever I can so that I can strengthen my ability to develop skills and move forward in my career.  Since March is Women’s History Month, I’ve found that many organizations have hosted events specifically geared towards helping women develop skills to advance in the workplace. 

Well, it looks like the U.S. government is also providing some help in this area.  The U.S. Department of Treasury is hosting a Women in Finance Symposium on Monday, March 29 between 10 am and 2 pm.    The panel will include Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation Chairman Sheila Bair and many others.  The panel will discuss how they achieved success in the financial world and will answer questions submitted by students and young professionals.  Questions can be emailed to the panel at the following website: WomenInFinance@do.treas.gov.

You have until the close of business on Friday, March 26 to submit your question.  Treasury is also recommending that people gather for “watch parties.”   The symposium will be moderated by CNBC anchor Maria Bartiromo.
