Connecting women in risk, regulation and compliance

Risky Women® is a global network connecting, celebrating and championing women in risk, regulation and compliance. It has proven to be a great forum to engage and interact with peers, exchange ideas, opportunities and insights in the governance risk and compliance industry. 

From San Francisco to Sydney, we have created a strong and vibrant network that connects a global community in 11 cities. The network has provided a voice for the female perspective of our rapidly growing, changing and influential industry and has proved to be an important forum for like-minded women to exchange ideas, opportunities and insights on governance, risk and compliance.

With over 500 active members and growing, we strive to bring together even more women shaping the debate and the industry. While there is no membership fee, the network was created to connect senior women in risk, regulation and compliance related roles, thus successful applicants will be notified by email.

In the meantime, connect with us on Twitter @RiskyWomen and email for more information.
