Video Transcript

[MUSIC] Women executives can develop a path to leadership by putting together a multi year plan for themselves. Think about it from an 18 month, 3 year, and 5 year horizon.

Women have to be very intentional about their careers and have a plan of action in order to accelerate a path to leadership. It takes determination, it takes courage, it takes a broad range of skills. And the way to do it is to have a plan. If there was one piece of advice that I could give to a young person entering the financial services industry today, it would be to build deep and lasting relationships inside and outside your organization and across the industry. This is an industry where relationships matter, relationships count, and relationships can help propel your career. [MUSIC]
