Raintree is a proud sponsor of the International Women’s Day Women + Wealth Gala every year
Women + Wealth’s mission is to provide a platform for women across the country to share their journey of success and inspire and empower others with their story. Through our International Women’s Day Galas, we bring people together to celebrate the social, educational, economical, and political achievements of female leaders.
Having recognized the gender gap in financial services, Raintree Financial Solutions decided to bring women from the industry together for an event on International Women’s Day 2016 with the net-proceeds being donated to a local charity. From our research, we found that women were far less confident about investing and less likely to participate in the financial industry than men. This provided a good opportunity to start engaging in a new way with women. Our first event that year was a huge hit. We soon realized that there was little going on for International Women’s Day in Canada which provided for a bigger opportunity to engage all people in a celebration of women with an event to promote, develop and celebrate key initiatives for women. What at the time was a corporate event held by Raintree Financial Solutions, has evolved into a not-for-profit with the same key agenda: to provide a platform for women across the country to share their journey of success and inspire and empower others with their story.
2021’s event was virtual due to covid-19 but was able to raise over $37,000 for the Canadian Women’s Foundation. You can learn more about Women + Wealth and their annual International Women’s Day Gala at www.wwgala.com.
