Scotiabank to host seminar for women in leadership
The Scotiabank Women’s Network will host a breakfast seminar and workshop titled, Women In Leadership, on September 22 from 8 am to 11.30 am at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad hotel, Port-of-Spain.
Topics to be covered include self-leadership, success and life purpose and emotional intelligence. Each participant will receive one month’s access to an Online Emotional Intelligence Journal with coaching guidance. Breakfast and registration will get going at 7 am. The cost is $450 per person and $3,150 for seats of eight persons. Deadline for registration and payment is September 19. Cancellation of attendance must be made at least 48 hours prior to the event, otherwise all fees are due and non refundable, the bank said in a statement. Facilitator of the event will be Shane Ram, currently managing director and principal consultant at STEP HR Consulting.
The Scotiabank Women’s Network arose as a result of the bank’s Advancement of Women’s Initiative, which has become a priority throughout the Scotiabank Group, where the vision is to be a recognised leader in the advancement of women in all countries in which the bank operates. The two local co-chairs of SWN are senior managers Vanessa Mc Pherson and Joanna del Pino. The bank said that research has shown that companies with the highest representation of women in senior management achieve better financial results than those with the lowest representation of women.
It stated that in addition, women’s economic power and force as consumers is growing significantly. By mirroring changing customer demographics, the bank said it is better positioned to understand customers’ unique needs and develop financial products to serve them. More than 70 per cent of the Scotiabank Group’s employees are women. “By removing barriers and providing women with the best possible chance to grow and advance, we better enable success for the Bank and all its employees,” the statement said.
