30th Anniversay - Women of the Year Awards

The Financial Women’s Association (FWA) has reached a major milestone in fundraising for our  nationally acclaimed scholarship, mentoring and summer training programs that have enhanced  the lives of nearly 6,000 students and young professionals. On April 23, 2014, the FWA will celebrate the 30th Anniversary Women of the Year Awards during our Annual Dinner at the  New York Grand Hyatt, 42nd Street.

This event, attended by more than 500 high-achieving professionals from every sector of the  financial world, raises the much-needed funds that allow our organization to continue to prepare  high school students for college and college students for the workplace. Last year’s event was a great success, and we are once again hoping that we can count on your company’s support to help  us exceed all expectations.

The 2014 extraordinary honorees are:

Martina Hund-Mejean
CFO, MasterCard



Vicki L. Fuller
CIO, New York State
Common Retirement Fund



We are well along in planning a great program with remarkable, groundbreaking  women. We are proud of all we’ve accomplished since we were founded in 1956, when eight enterprising women on Wall Street met to share professional experiences and further their  knowledge. Today, the FWA has more than 850 members worldwide, dedicated to developing  future leaders, enhancing the role of women in finance and investing in the community.

Last year, our attendees had a great time—being inspired by our honorees and our remarkable  students, as well as seizing invaluable networking opportunities. Please save the date and consider  including FWA in your corporate sponsorship plans. Also consider making a deeper impact by serving on our 30th Anniversary Benefit Committee. Enclosed is a reservation card for your  convenience. Please respond by November 15th to be included in the promotional materials.

This anniversary celebration will include past and present FWA-sponsored students who  have achieved remarkable personal and professional goals as a result of the support of FWA  programs, mentors and scholarships. As we look to the future, we are confident that we can  continue to prepare young people to succeed in a global marketplace, but can only do so with  your support.

By supporting FWA, you are making a profound difference in young lives today—so they can  make a difference in the world economy tomorrow.
