Women in Finance (WIF) is a not-for-profit association, first established in 1996 in Queensland with the purpose of expanding the networking and professional development opportunities for women working in the finance sector.
Since 1996, WIF has expanded chapters to other states and continues to build a strong member base of professional women across finance, banking, wealth management, stock broking, accounting and legal sectors and related industries. With connections to over 500 professionals and expanding membership, WIF Queensland continues to command a dominant presence as a premier networking association in the South East Queensland financial sector.
We align ourselves to core values to CONNECT, INSPIRE and EDUCATE both our members and broader community via the quality of events we host. These core principles allow our members to benefit from not only from connection to new and existing industry members as well as opportunities to access a range of speakers and events to challenge and develop on a personal level.
We are also proud members of our community and each year select a charity to which we raise funds through the support of our members and event attendees. All of our fundraising is directed to the chosen charity.

Each year, up to two babies in every 1,000 will be born in Australia with permanent hearing loss – and this rate doubles by the time children reach school age. It has been projected that by 2050, one in four Australians will be living with hearing loss.
Established in 1992 by Dr Dimity Dornan AO, Hear and Say is a Queensland-wide charity supporting children who are deaf or hard of hearing, by teaching them to listen and speak. Across five centres and via a Telepractice program for rural and remote families, Hear and Say works with over 900 children each year through its Early Intervention program, with services including:
Audiology (including a specialist Cochlear Implant program)
Auditory-Verbal Therapy and Speech Pathology
Resilience and Wellbeing social skills programs
Hear to Learn – School Hearing Screening program (screening over 10,000 students each year)
Research, advocacy and professional development training
Over the past five years, almost 100% of children completing Hear and Say’s Early Intervention program have gone onto mainstream school, with core language results within or above the typical range.
Women in Finance is proud to be partnering with Hear and Say in 2019 and 2020 to deliver the lifelong gifts of hearing, speech and sound, and help change the lives of thousands of children and their families.
Women in Finance select a partner for a duration of two years. Hear and Say were selected in May 2019.
