Women in Compliance 2020 Finalists 

Finalists for the 2020 Women in Compliance Awards were announced this morning, so anyone who knows women working in compliance may want to take a peek and see who made the cut.

This will be the seventh year for the Women in Compliance Awards. The winners are announced at a gala dinner in London, happening this time around on March 26, 2020. The event now draws hundreds of compliance professionals dressed to the nines and flooding their social media feeds with photos.

The awards are given across 10 categories for individuals and another six categories for teams. That means we have too many finalists to list all of them in this post, and I’m sorry about that because every finalist does deserve congratulations and attention. Some of the finalist categories and their nominees, however, include…

Again, that’s only a partial list, so please do visit the Women in Compliance website to see the full rundown of everyone who has made it this far. We even have a few men on the list this year in several gender-neutral categories, which I believe is a first. 

Winners will be selected by a panel of judges assembled by C5, the organizers of the Women in Compliance event. Even the judges are a who’s who of women (and a few men) working in compliance. I would not want to be on the judging panel to pare down from this short list to the winners, since everyone on the short list really is impressive.
