NEW YORK, April 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Donnelley Financial Solutions--a leading provider of software and services for the creation, management and distribution of critical financial, business communications--and Mediant, a leading provider of investor communications solutions, will host the second annual Women in Industry event on May 10th, 2017 at the Lucca Garden Room in the Boca Raton Resort and Club, Boca Raton, FL.
"We created this event to provide an opportunity for women in the financial services industry to network with other professionals and discuss similar challenges and solutions," said Sherry Moreland, Mediant's President and Chief Operating Officer. "The mission of our annual Women in Industry event is to inspire, support, and encourage women to overcome obstacles and reach for success."
Building on the momentum of last year's inaugural event, which included a panel of influential women speakers who conversed with attendees about challenges and successes in the corporate environment, this year's program features keynote speaker and renowned macroeconomist, Diane Swonk. As one of the most-respected economists in the world and among the most frequently quoted economists in the financial press, Diane Swonk advises policymakers and business leaders around the globe. She has more than 30 years of experience in financial services and sits on advisory committees to the Federal Reserve Board and its regional banks.
Ms. Swonk will discuss her experience as a woman in finance and share how she overcame many obstacles to become the highly successful economist she is today. In addition, Ms. Swonk will provide attendees with an insightful overview of the current economic environment under the new US administration and speak on implications for the US economy and the Federal Reserve in 2017 and beyond.
Cynthia Clarke, Chief Information Officer of Donnelley Financial Solutions will be making opening remarks at the event and added, "We are excited about the level of enthusiasm we received from last year's event and are honored to have Diane Swonk serve as our keynote speaker this year. We look forward to what promises to be a stimulating and insightful discussion."
