It might be a cliché but that doesn’t make it any less true – Cathi can win an award in her sleep! This morning we woke up to the exciting news that Cathi has won Woman of the Year – Adviser Support Category at the Professional Adviser Woman in Finance Awards 2022, and we couldn’t be more excited!

Considering all of the other inspiring nominees, we are so grateful and honoured to have won such a hard-fought category. We are delighted that Cathi and the team have been recognised, not just for our support to advisers, but also our efforts in making financial services a more attractive career option for women. A big part of the win is down to Cathi’s dedication to her work via The Verve Foundation and the We Are Change initiative, which has provided the opportunity to gain financial qualifications for those who may not have been able to access this learning themselves, as well as support in finding a suitable role when they are finished. 

Cathi is a true role model and a mentor for other women in financial services and we hope that many others can follow her example by being the change that the industry needs and providing the space and chance for others to do the same. They say you should be the change to make the change you want to see, and that’s just what Cathi does!

So, cheers everyone and thanks for all your support. If you want to help make a difference you can find out about the work that The Verve Foundation is doing on our website here.
