Throughout the years, the STA Foundation has recognized those who have made notable and genuine contributions to the well being of individuals within the financial services industry. While each STA Foundation Award celebrates something different — stewardship and service, advocacy, mentorship, philanthropy — they are all rooted in STA’s founding principle: dictum meum pactum, “my word is my bond.”

We’re pleased to announce that CNBC’s Sue Herera and Bob Pisani will be featured at this year’s STA Women in Finance Awards Event!
Join us for an evening of presentations and panel discussions featuring this year’s STA Women in Finance Award recipients.
