“We know that our women are already innately a strong force and we’ve recognized that they need a team of experts to help them,” said Page Harty. SignatureWOMEN, of which she is a director, is an internal community serving the firm’s female clients.
The program presents frequent events on topics such as women’s health and wellness, financial education, philanthropy, business and social networking, and becoming “suddenly solo.” More than 500 women have attended events throughout the year.
The initiative has caught the attention of professionals outside the firm, she said, as family law attorneys and executive women affinity groups often refer clients to the firm’s events.
How important is community for women?
Extremely, said Ms. Harty, who is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, and a CFP.
“It has brought women together to help each other and learn together. They’re starting to make friendships and business relationships,” she said. “We help them create a life that they can enjoy now, not just in retirement.”
