About Women in Finance/Women in S.T.E.A.M.

Women in Finance is the Atlanta financial and investment community’s annual fundraiser to support the work of The Atlanta Women’s Foundation. The event attracts a community of everyday philanthropists who are committed to investing in the power and potential of women and girls. In 2020, Women in S.T.E.A.M. was set for an inaugural event with an exciting panel of professionals from the S.T.E.A.M. industry.  Due to COVID-19, we look forward to hosting an in-person Women in S.T.E.A.M. event in 2021.  Cybersecurity is a topic of interest to all women, so we are thrilled to combine the two groups into one exciting webinar this year.  The funds raised will support AWF’s mission to lead women and girls from poverty to prosperity and support our COVID-19 fund.
