BOLD (Building Opportunities through Leadership and Development)

Division Leader: Lauren Leipold

The FWA’s BOLD Division’s committees design and deliver activities that prepare, develop and mentor professionals via executive speakers, panelists, classes, seminars and networking opportunities. Each is tailored to a range of constituents from the C-suite and other senior executives, to mid-level professionals and entrepreneurs. Although our core focus is the financial industry, our members and guests represent a wide range of professions, including: law, governance, regulation, high-tech, and academia. Members working on these committees network with recognized experts and business dignitaries. They learn how to design and execute above-mentioned offerings, resulting in enhanced leadership skills and expertise. The Men’s Alliance plans events where men, who are some of our biggest supporters, are encouraged to attend. For those living or working outside the City, three regional groups in Long Island, New Jersey and Westchester/Southern Connecticut sponsor a variety of informational and networking programs.
