PEAK Awards 2022

On May 11, 2022, the Association of Women in Finance hosted the 24th annual PEAK Awards. The event held at the Fairmont Waterfront hotel was attended by over 300 guests treated to stories of five inspiring individuals who have excelled in the finance industry in Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.

Thanks to the generosity of the Gala attendees, over $20,000.00 was pledged for the 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.
