Women in Securitization

Founded in 2014, our Women in Securitization (WiS) initiative promotes women by delivering outstanding related content and connecting them to peers, mentors and sponsors. WiS membership is available to everyone in our industry, offering several opportunities throughout the year to learn, connect and network together.


Wednesdays with WiS

SFA’s Women in Securitization (WiS) introduced Wednesdays with WiS as a way to keep our industry virtually connected during the COVID-19 pandemic by providing regular programming in a variety of formats, including keynote addresses, fireside chats, and interactive sessions.

Join Women in Securitization (WiS) and Master Sommelier Laura Fiorvanti on our next segment of Wednesdays with WIS, where we will offer a wine tasting class based on the most delectable wine and food pairings during the spring and summer months.  This complimentary online webinar, brought you courtesy of our WiS Sponsors, will take place on Wednesday, June 17 at 5:00 PM EDT, so you can sip and snack after your day at work.
