February 5, 2019 – Boston, MA – ISITC, the industry trade group focused on developing standards and best practices in financial services operations, today announced Dominica Ribeiro, Head of North America Institutional Marketing at State Street Global Advisors, as the featured speaker for the Women’s Breakfast at ISITC’s 25th Annual Securities Operations Summit. The session will be held on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 at the InterContinental Hotel in Boston, MA.

During the Breakfast, Ribeiro will speak about State Street’s ‘Fearless Girl’ – how it ignited a global conversation about the power of women in leadership and inspired companies around the world to re-examine the composition of their boards. The topic aligns with the conference theme, “Financial Services Disrupted: Charting the Course,” as firms continue to evaluate how to better promote diversity and inclusion in the industry.

“We are honored to have Dominica join us this year at our Annual Securities Operations Summit,” said Lisa Iagatta, ISITC Chair. “The  gender diversity campaign, pioneered by the team at State Street Global Advisors and represented by the ‘Fearless Girl’ sculpture on Wall Street, has greatly influenced our industry for the better. We look forward to bringing her inspiring story and valuable insights to ISITC members and other conference attendees.”

Ribeiro has nearly 25 years of experience in financial services. Having spent much of her career in institutional marketing, she has influenced the strategic direction and communications approach for leaders such as Fidelity Investments, Pyramis Global Advisors, and Putnam Investments. In her current role as Head of North America Institutional Marketing at State Street Global Advisors, Ribeiro leads the planning and implementation of the company’s integrated marketing campaigns.

The Women’s Breakfast will take place on the final day of ISITC’s 25th Annual Securities Operations Summit, which will run from March 24-27, 2019. The Women’s Breakfast is open to the public as a single-event ticket, which can be purchased here.
