Winners of the European Awards for Women in Finance 2022

The third edition of the European Awards for Women in Finance was held in person at the Four Seasons Hotel in London on October 13, and the event was once again a physical event that evoked the collective strength needed to break the glass ceiling in finance.

An incredible level of support for the event saw a packed house into the evening and winners’ speeches celebrating all of the women nominees as well as the winners themselves.

Bloomberg’s Paula Fry dedicated her award to her seven-year-old self, who was told she wasn’t good enough at math, to the 22-year-old forex trader she became at Goldman Sachs who suffered from impostor syndrome, and to the little voice in his head, which told him ‘You can do this’, and he finally dedicated the award to that same voice that he hoped existed in the heads of everyone else in the room.

Such strong support for fellows from across the industry epitomized the sentiment of the evening, creating a very moving and moving evening celebrating female success in financial services.

The event was beautifully presented by Noreen Shah Biddle, Director of Marketing and Communications at Numis, who also founded Reboot, a working group of senior marketing and communications professionals, working on a volunteer basis to ensure momentum is kept up and that it flows dialogue around career in the UK workplace and society.
