Please join us for the next Collaborative WIM Original special quarterly interactive event, hosted by CFA Society Los Angeles. Come prepared to network in breakout sessions with your peers and enjoy an interactive workshop tailored to our industry.

Collaborative WIM is modeled after the CFA Institute Women In Investment Management (WIM) Initiative. CFA Societies and FPA chapters around the world have joined efforts to further our shared goals of inclusion and diversity in capitalism. The partnership currently comprises 70 societies across the US, Canada, Caribbean, EMEA and LatAm, representing approaching 60,000 finance professionals and approximately 40% of the global CFA Society network. If you want to keep up to date with the goings on in this group, consider joining the LinkedIn Group Collaborative WIM Initiative.

We want to create innovative solutions to our most suffocating struggles, but in order for that to happen, our brains can’t be stuck in survival mode. Feeling stressed and afraid is an arousal state and an over stimulated brain needs systems to get back our sense of wonder and curiosity. When we give our brains a framework to attach to, we feel more in control and ready to move forward, instead of feeling frozen in place. Join biopsychologist Mary Poffenroth as she shares her favorite evidence based frameworks to help you move through everyday fear and build a future full of promising ideas and surprising solutions.
