Women in Securitization: A “Call to Action” for All Men in Securitization

SFIG's Women in Securitization (WiS) initiative challenges all men in the industry to join your female colleagues at the WiS plenary panel at SFIG Vegas 2017!

Wendy Cohn, Managing Director at Fitch Ratings and co-chair of Women in Securitization, will moderate this session to address the crucial role that senior leaders must play in retaining and advancing women in their organizations. The panel is deliberately comprised of all men, to hear specifically from male leaders in the industry who have benefited from the active promotion of women in securitization. Expect this panel to not only discuss the obvious merits of diversity in the workplace, and provide guidance on how to promulgate change, but to challenge the audience to take action.


  • Richard Johns, Executive Director, SFIG
  • Reed Auerbach, Partner, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius LLP
  • Howard Kaplan, Partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP
  • Timothy Vara, Managing Director, BNY Mellon Corporate Trust

Do not miss this opportunity to become active in this initiative. WiS membership is open to all industry participants! For more information, visit our Women in Securitization page and sign up here.

The WiS Plenary panel will take place on Tuesday February 28th at 11:45am PST, in the General Session Room.
