PEAK Awards 2018

The Association of Women in Finance (AWF) hosted the 21st annual PEAK Awards on May 9, 2018 at the Fairmont Waterfront hotel. The theme of the evening was "Transformation of Women in Finance", with 340 guests treated to stories of inspiring women who have excelled in the finance industry in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.

Thanks to the generosity of Gala attendees, $17,250 was pledged for our AWF scholarship fund with all proceeds to be used to encourage women to enter the field of finance, and to assist students who require financial aid to reach their academic and, ultimately, career goals in the finance industry.
