A Non-Profit, Educational & Professional Networking Organization 
for Women in the Public Finance Industry in Boston

Boston Women in Public Finance, Inc. is a 501(C)(6) non-profit organization for women in the public finance industry in the Greater Boston area. Founded in 2010, we provide educational and professional networking events throughout the year.

Boston Women in Public Finance is 100% funded by sponsors, and does not charge membership or event fees. We are a chapter of the national organization, Women in Public Finance, which was founded in 1997 in Chicago, and has since expanded nationally. Participants in the national and regional groups include state and local government issuers, investment bankers, commercial bankers, attorneys, corporate trust providers, financial advisors, nonprofits, rating agency analysts, and bond insurers.

Our Mission

“To support and advance the careers of women in public finance by fostering relationships, providing networking opportunities, and offering educational industry-related events.”

New Networking Opportunities! 

In 2017 WPF-Boston initiated a pilot networking opportunity in partnership with the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce at their Women’s Networking Breakfasts. WPF members registered for the Breakfasts through the Chamber and were seated at a WPF reserved table. Due to the success of the pilot, WPF-Boston is expanding this opportunity to our entire membership for both the Women’s Networking Breakfasts AND the Government Affairs Forums. These events enable our members to hear from both prominent women leaders and elected officials from local, state and federal levels, and to network with hundreds of professionals from across the Greater Boston region. The table is limited to 10 seats per event and is filled on a first registered, first seated basis. Please contact Lori Hindle for more details on the registration process ([email protected]).

Don’t forget to visit our Twitter and LinkedIn group page and to save the date for the WPF Annual Conference on October 4-5!
