“THIS IS OUR MOMENT” is the theme
Women in Listed Derivatives, or WILD, is holding their fifth annual symposium on Tuesday, November 1 from 3 to 7 PM at the UBS Building in Chicago.
This year’s program will feature opening remarks by OCC Executive Chairman and CEO Craig Donohue and an interview with longtime CME Board member and financial journalist Terry Savage. Mr. Donohune will be conducting the interview of Ms. Savage.
There will also be a panel discussion that will focus on diversity in board and executive committees. Lynn Marek of Crain’s will moderate, something I have not seen before. Maureen Downs, Dorri McWhorter, Cynthia Zellanger and Bridget Gainer will be on the panel.
There will also be cocktails.
I will let you on to a little known secret. Men can attend WILD events, even if me being kicked out of a gathering in Boca Raton offers evidence otherwise.
Here is the catch, men and non-WILD member women have to pay more to attend. The cost is $100 for non-members and $50 for members. For women, $50 of the $100 will go to the dues for the coming year, so it is an attend and join for them.
I say some industry men should buckle down, pay the $100 and learn more about this WILD thing and what they do.
Unfortuncatetly, I will be in London and won’t be able to attend.
But sign up here.
