Women continue to be under-represented in the banking
industry. ABA would like to help lead and inspire women in banking by
providing resources and opportunities to network with their peers.
"Research shows that diverse management teams produce higher ROIs. As diversity, including gender diversity, is recognized as a competitive advantage, smart leaders will work to overcome factors that inhibit the development of women leaders."
—Dorothy Savarese, ABA Chairman-Elect and Chairman, President and CEO, Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank

Women at Stonier
The first ABA Stonier Graduate School of Banking graduating class in 1935 had 228 men and the first women were not admitted until 1964. Over the years, we have made significant strides in attracting more women to the school, and our hope is to increase the number of women graduates. In 2016, 33% of attendees were women.
If you are a female financial services professional considering applying to Stonier, female alumni are available to talk to you and provide insights into the Stonier experience from their individual perspectives. Request to speak to one of the woman advocates.
