Networking Event Highlights the Power of Women in Leadership

Leadership, influence, impact were just some of the words spoken during the Fearless Women’s event on September 26, 2018, presented by the St. Louis Community Foundation and sponsored by the women of Hightower St. Louis Wealth Advisors.

Guests gathered to hear from Brie Williams, Vice President of State Street Global Advisors and Head of Practice Management for the Global SPDR Business, as she discussed how State Street Global Advisors commissioned the statue they titled “Fearless Girl” to inspire gender diversity in corporate America and purposeful investing. The Fearless Girl statue was placed in the New York Financial district on the eve of International Women’s Day in 2017 to raise awareness about the importance of gender diversity in corporate leadership. Fearless Girl celebrates the spirit of women who are taking charge today, and serves as inspiration for the next generation of female leaders.

Barbara Archer of HighTower St. Louis Wealth Advisors stated, “We are delighted to support our community of powerful women and highlight organizations developing our young women leaders of tomorrow; Girls Scouts, Girls, Inc., and Marian Middle School. Our team knows we can help others make a plan, make an investment and make a difference.”

Guests shared their personal fearless stories and had an opportunity to encourage one another to continue building an unstoppable network of female influencers and leaders.
