About The Women’s Bond Club
Established in 1921, the Women's Bond is a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional development and networking of women in financial services. It aims “to advance women's leadership, grow our intellectual capital, and return worth to our companies, communities and upcoming generations.” Key to this mission is the WBC College Scholarship Program for young women enrolled in undergraduate university business programs. Women’s Bond Club membership reflects buy-side and sell-side across financial services, and a variety of executive management, consulting and technology functions. Proceeds from the annual Merit Award Dinner go to the Women's Bond Club and its many charitable giving programs.
