The Rise of Women Leaders in Financial Services
We are conducting research specifically around women in financial services. The research is to evaluate the evolution and composition of women in financial services leadership roles over the last decade and to assess the impact that sponsorship and mentorship play in the development, advancement, and retention of the next generation of women leaders in FSIs

Key questions we want to address:

1. Is sponsorship an essential component to the advancement and retention of the next generation of women leaders in financial services?

2. Are financial institutions meeting (or exceeding) the need for formal and informal mentorship programs that help prepare the next generation of women leaders in financial services?

3. How can sponsorship and mentorship opportunities prepare women leaders for the digital future in financial services?
Trends Shaping the Future of Professional Services
The project team has identified a set of trends expected to drive long-term changes in the Professional Services industry (i.e. PS Trends 2030).

However, many uncertainties/debates surround the identified trends and their implications for the PS industry.

These include questions related to client demand and buying preferences. For example, how will clients select and engage with PSFs in the future? What value will clients place on specialized vs. broad-based expertise?

Other uncertainties involve long-term implications of technology. How will technology consultants add value in 2030? Will automation lead to outsourcing or insourcing? How should PSFs think about data strategy?
