Chantal Peters, an associate in TLT’s Financial Services Disputes and Investigations team, has joined the committee of the Women in Banking & Finance (WIBF) organisation in Manchester.
WIBF is a non-profit membership organisation for financial services professionals, with branches in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester. The network aims to bolster female contribution to the industry and foster members’ ambitious spirit with networking events, development programmes and leadership opportunities.
Chantal was invited to join the recently-established Manchester branch to support the organisation with raising awareness, building relationships and developing opportunities for other women in the finance sector across the North West.
Chantal Peters, associate at TLT, says: “I am delighted to have been invited to join the WIBF committee. I believe that women have a key role to play in the development of the financial services sector and am keen to support this network as it strives to empower women in the North West to achieve their potential.
“I believe that the growth of this network will help both retain and attract key talent to the region, supporting the overall development of the financial services sector in the North West. I am excited and honoured to be playing a part in the development of this organisation in the region.”
Jennie Koo, regional lead, head of regional branches at WIBF, says: "I am delighted to welcome Chantal to the Manchester committee and the support of TLT. Chantal joins a team of action driven individuals who will lead on bringing WIBF's mission of Connect, Challenge and Inspire to life within the region, to drive a much needed gender lens within the sector."
Chantal joins fellow associate Dawn Webber as a WIBF committee member, with Dawn representing the Bristol branch since 2016.
TLT is further represented at the forum by members at both the Bristol and London branches, including partner Deborah Sheldon, who has been an active member for a number of years.
