SourceMedia, a leading B2B media and information company, added three new professional communities – focused on women executives in asset management, employee benefits and healthcare information technology – to its acclaimed family of programs celebrating and supporting the achievements of women in financial services.
The three new events join a powerhouse roster of celebrations, networking events, rankings and awards for women business leaders that began in 2003 with the debut of American Banker’s Most Powerful Women in Banking. These programs – which include content assessing the role of women in these industries and their progress in attaining the topmost roles – all share a common mission: to identify and celebrate excellence, to nurture talent, and to provide forums to remind each industry of all the talent available to it.
Health Data Management introduced its Women in Healthcare IT Awards on Oct. 6, highlighting the professional achievements of five healthcare IT leaders working in provider organizations. “Each nominee has transformed her organization and, in so doing, made the U.S. healthcare system more responsive to the needs of patients,” said HDM editor-in-chief Greg Gillespie.

Employee Benefit Adviser honored 20 executives at its Most Influential Women in Benefit Advising celebration, which took place Sept. 30 during SourceMedia’s Workplace Benefits Summit in Boca Raton, Fla. “These women represent firms from across the country – from business owners to lobbyists to marketing directors to compliance officers,“ said Elizabeth Galentine, Editor-in-Chief of Employee Benefit Adviser. “We honor them for leadership and ingenuity in the field of employee benefits and for elevating the status of all women in the industry through their mentorship and strong example.” Details about these professionals and their achievements are available at: http://eba.benefitnews.com/gallery/eba/the-most-influential-women-in-benefit-advising-2743850-1.html
Money Management Executive presented its inaugural Top Women in Asset Management Awards in May, recognizing 10 women who have had a significant impact on both their organizations and the fund industry. “In an industry still largely dominated by men, these women stood out for their impressive leadership skills and styles,” said Scott Wenger, Editorial Director of SourceMedia’s Investment Advisor Group, which includes MME.
