Women in Compliance

A global network of talent and kinship

Risk Advisory founded the Women in Compliance group in London in 2009 to give like-minded women the opportunity to network and build relationships with others in the risk management consulting field. Since then our membership’s grown to over 600 in 37 countries.


In response to requests from our burgeoning overseas membership base, we’ve held events in Hong Kong and Washington DC, in addition to the many successful London based events we’ve hosted over the years.

New members are always welcome, so anyone interested in joining Women in Compliance or receiving an invitation to one of our events can let us know by completing the form via the button below or by joining our LinkedIn group.

How to Increase Gender Diversity

Promoting gender diversity and inclusion in compliance is not only a matter of social responsibility, but it can also lead to improved business outcomes. By implementing strategies to support women in compliance, companies can create a more diverse and effective compliance team, which can help to identify and manage risks more effectively.

  1. Ensuring that women have equal access to training and development opportunities. This can include providing opportunities for women to attend conferences, seminars, and training programs, as well as offering mentorship and coaching programs.
  2. Support women in compliance by promoting work-life balance and flexible working arrangements. This can help to address the challenges that women often face when trying to balance their work and personal responsibilities, such as caring for children or elderly relatives.
  3. Ensure that recruitment and promotion processes are fair and unbiased. Companies should consider implementing blind recruitment processes, where the names and personal details of candidates are removed from resumes and applications. This can help to reduce unconscious bias in the hiring process.
  4. Companies can promote gender diversity by ensuring that women have equal opportunities to advance into senior leadership roles. This can be achieved by setting targets for the representation of women in leadership positions, providing leadership training and development programs, and implementing mentoring and sponsorship programs to support women’s career progression.
  5. Create a culture of diversity and inclusion within the organization. This means fostering a work environment where all employees feel valued and respected, regardless of their gender, ethnicity, or background. This can be achieved through initiatives such as diversity and inclusion training, employee resource groups, and regular communication and feedback channels.
