Amanda Pullinger is Chief Executive of 100 Women in Finance, where she leads a staff team and provides direction to 500 volunteer practitioners globally. 100 Women in Finance is focused on empowering women in the finance industry and inspiring the next generation of pre-career young women and has over 20,000 registered members globally. She previously held a series of roles in asset management and is a member of BAFTA and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. Our conversation tracks her many divergent careers that ultimately led to one in finance and the resilience that she built in her early childhood and young adulthood. Moving then to her current life’s work and passion we speak about the origins of 100 Women in Finance – which started out as 100 Women in Hedge Funds and how the organization’s mission started with visibility and fellowship but has evolved into so much more of an empowering platform. I hope that you enjoy Amanda sharing her vision of this extraordinary and ground breaking organization and the important work that it has done, but also what remains to be done.
