Capco Honors Women at International Women's Month Lunch Event
- Renowned author Carol Frohlinger to deliver keynote address
NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- To celebrate and honor International Women's Month, Capco, the global business and technology consultancy dedicated solely to the financial services industry, today is hosting a lunch honoring the role of women in the financial services, technology and consulting industries. The event, held at Meli Restaurant, will feature a keynote address by Carol Frohlinger, co-author of Her Place At The Table: A Woman's Guide to Negotiating Five Key Challenges to Leadership Success and Nice Girls Just Don't Get It.
The event will celebrate the ongoing contribution of women in the financial services and technology sectors, and focuses on how women can continue to influence and grow their roles within their organizations. In an interactive talk, Frohlinger will share her workplace experience, offering advice and examples of how to be resilient, proactive and emotionally equipped to negotiate successfully. Guests at the event include Capco consultants, clients from leading financial services firms and other market participants.
"Traditionally, consulting, technology and financial services have been male-dominated sectors, providing few opportunities for upward mobility," said Marcia Wakeman, Partner in Capco's Banking Practice. "Since its founding, Capco has committed itself to the internal promotion and growth of women within the firm, and this event is another great example of the dedication to this important cause held by every member of our organization."
Capco continues to heavily invest in the development of women at the firm and the community as part of its broader commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility. Capco is a long-time supporter of Dress for Success and is hosting a firm-wide clothing drive across North America to promote economic independence for disadvantaged women. They are also involved in multiple programs designed to advance the development in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math through skill-based volunteerism in conjunction with youth organizations across the United States.
