Who We Are
Texas Wall Street Women (TXWSW) was formed to bring together women in Texas in the finance industry including hedge funds, private equity and venture capital firms, mutual funds, public pensions, endowments, foundations, wealth management firms, investment banks, attorneys, accountants, and other money-management and service provider firms. We also welcome those individuals in government and non-profit entities in the financial industry as well as students that wish to pursue finance as a career. TXWSW is an exclusive non-profit peer network of professional women who are committed to making a difference in their community and to developing and growing professionally. We will continue to achieve these goals through our initiatives in philanthropy, networking, and professional development.”
What We Do
Networking & Mentorship: through our events, we offer our members the resources to build an effective professional network that will serve them in their careers and beyond.
Education: we help foster individual professional development through quarterly education events that cover a wide variety of topics.
Philanthropy: we give back to the community through our partnership with the eight Texas-based all-girls schools started by the Young Women’s Preparatory Network (formerly the Foundation for the Education of Young Women, www.youngwomensprep.org). In addition to raising money to help support the college readiness programs at each school, our members volunteer at the schools to assist with a number of their initiatives including college-bound mentorship, career day and financial literacy.”
Where We Are
Currently, our organization is active in Austin, Dallas and Houston holding events monthly in each of these cities. We also have a growing membership base in Fort Worth and San Antonio and host events in those cities periodically.”
TXWSW supports young women’s issues in the areas of education, financial literacy and leadership by hosting events and volunteer opportunities throughout the year including bi-annual fundraising affairs to support the all-girls schools across Texas started by the YWPN.
Networking & Membership
TXWSW exists to connect women in the finance industry. We host events monthly in each active city as a way to bring together common-minded women dispersed throughout the state. We also introduce young women to the variety of career opportunities in the finance field through events held at local universities. We are a multi-generational organization. Women of all ages and stages of their careers are welcome at our events.
TXWSW strives to foster individual professional development by hosting events featuring speakers from industry, investment management and academia on a broad range of topics related to finance and careers in finance. We have quarterly events in Austin, Dallas and Houston.
Additionally, we host the annual Leaders in Finance Investment Outlook Panel which brings together industry experts to share their views on the market.
Membership is open to practitioners in the finance industry including hedge funds, private equity firms, mutual funds, public pensions, endowments, foundations, wealth management firms, investment banks, attorneys, accountants, and other money-management and service provider firms.
