Deutsche Bank today announced that it will host the 16th annual Women on Wall Street® conference, entitled “Innovation: Ideas to Action,” tonight at 5:00pm in New York.

Following the keynote, Sharon Hall, Partner and Co-founder of the Diversity Practice at Spencer Stuart, will moderate a panel discussion among five female thought-leaders on how to successfully implement innovation, including:

“We are thrilled to bring together another group of bright and talented female leaders in the industry for the 16th Women on Wall Street conference,” said Seth Waugh, Chief Executive Officer of Deutsche Bank Americas and member of the Group Executive Committee. “We hope the conference inspires more women to pursue careers in financial services.”

The Women on Wall Street network (WOWS®) is an integral part of Deutsche Bank’s diversity strategy which seeks to develop, retain, inspire and motivate diverse talent. Previously, WOWS was called the Global Partnership Network for Women (GPNW), and was established in 1991 by a group of women at Bankers Trust prior to its merger with Deutsche Bank. WOWS’ mission is to enhance the work experience and maximize the potential of female employees.
