2022 Scholarship Celebration a Huge Success!

Our scholarship celebration was held on June 3, 2022. Seventeen women, both graduate students, and undergraduate students were awarded scholarships.

As of 2022, the FWSF has awarded over $2.7 million in scholarship grants to more than 325 women. The FWSF Scholarship Fund provides graduate and undergraduate scholarships to San Francisco Bay Area women pursuing careers in finance and financial services. Beyond financial support, FWSF scholarship recipients have the opportunity to be mentored by FWSF members and attend career development and networking events.

Event Video Available for Members:

FWSF Diversity and Inclusion Committee Presents: Anti-Asian Hate Awareness with guest speaker Assemblyman David Chiu

One of the many functions FWSF’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee performs is to convey important issues to our Board of Directors. Because you are a valued FWSF Member, we would like to share this presentation video recording with you as an added member-only benefit.

As you may be aware, hate crimes against Asian American Pacific Islanders have skyrocketed over the past year; and this is not altogether new but unfortunately, it’s been a silent symptom that has surged since the pandemic.

FWSF’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, along with guest speaker Assemblyman David Chiu, have come together to heighten awareness and provide education on how to take action against anti-Asian hate, be better allies, and demonstrate the importance of supporting our AAPI colleagues, families, friends and communities.

The video is in the members-only section of the website under "Event Recording Library."

FWSF President's Diversity and Inclusion Statement

Dear FWSF Community:

Along with many of you, I’ve spent countless hours reflecting on the tragic events of recent days and weeks, wondering what I can do to further the causes of racial justice and peace. I believe that all of us are called to find the role that we can play in moving our society toward reconciliation.
