PEAK Awards 2016

The Association of Women in Finance (AWF) hosted the 19th annual PEAK Awards on May 10, 2016 at the Fairmont Waterfront hotel. The theme of the evening was "Performing Under Pressure". Thanks to the incredible generosity of the Gala attendees, $22,830 was pledged for our AWF scholarship fund -- money that will be used to encourage women to enter the field of finance and to assist students who require financial support in order to reach their goals in the finance industry.
