WHF 40 under 40

WHF is excited to honor 40 professionals under 40 from the fields of housing and financial services as part of its 40th anniversary year. Selectees will be honored at WHF’s 40th anniversary celebration reception on June 11, 2019 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.

WHF is asking its members to nominate individuals for this honor. We are seeking nominees who are 40 or under and have demonstrated success in the fields of housing or financial services. WHF seeks nominees who represent the diversity and inclusiveness of our younger members and the housing and financial services industries. WHF desires nominees who have promoted diversity and inclusion in their professional and volunteer efforts. Consistent with WHF’s mission over its entire 40-year history, WHF wants nominees committed to promoting the professional and educational development of women. 

Self nominations are permitted. Although only members can nominate potential selections, the honorees need not be members themselves (although we will certainly encourage them to join!). Nominations are due by 5:00pm, Friday, March 15, 2019.

Any professional selected will need to attend the June 11 celebration in person as a guest of WHF (nominators should confirm availability of nominees prior to submission).
