Capital W Alumna: The Catalyst

Stephanie Pow

Stephanie Pow founded Capital W in 2007 with a group of like-minded young women, all passionate about equipping young women to “tackle any role”. 

After graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce (Finance), Stephanie completed an MBA from University of Pennsylvania- Wharton School and MPA from Harvard University. Stephanie is currently Strategy Director at Vend, a cloud-based POS software company. 
 

Keen to learn about Capital W’s influence on her life, we asked Stephanie about how she helped catalyse the women empowerment movement in UNSW.

What motivated you to start Capital W?
At eighteen, I had my first practical experience in business – an internship at UBS, working on the largest trading floor in the southern hemisphere. I continued in a part-time capacity during my second year of university and I often represented the firm at campus recruiting events. On multiple occasions, upon hearing that I worked on the trading floor, young women would exclaim, “I could never do that!” Truth be told, I would have said the same thing a year earlier if it were not for the fact that UNSW Finance Co-op had placed me there. Inspired by the opportunity to empower other women to tackle any role, as well as my own experience, I pitched the idea of Capital W to a group of like-minded friends and the rest, as they say, is history!

How has Capital W helped shape who you are today?
When I reflect on the early days of Capital W, I am reminded of the resourcefulness and tenacity of the founding team. The launch of Capital W was a success because the team truly believed in the mission we were out to achieve. We were all willing to go the extra mile, whether that involved asking friends of friends of friends for introductions to potential sponsors, working on Capital W related activities after wrapping up long internship work days or making awkward promotional videos to show at lectures (thankfully this was before YouTube was really big!). Over time, I have come to realise that the chance to be part of something like this is exceedingly rare. To this day, the fulfillment I experienced as part of the Capital W founding team continues to be my benchmark for whenever I am evaluating a new opportunity – and it’s a high bar to clear.


The theme for this year’s Capital W Annual Dinner is ‘She Means Business’. What does this theme mean to you?

When we started Capital W in 2007, the focus was very much on broadening the opportunity set for female business students (the ‘Lean In’ approach if you like). In the ensuing decade, we’ve seen a greater acknowledgement of the structural and systematic barriers that make it difficult for women to enter certain industries and to ascend. To me, the theme for the 2019 Capital W Annual Dinner ‘She Means Business’ speaks to the growing momentum around addressing and dismantling these barriers – recruitment methods, work arrangements, promotion criteria, the process for handling harassment and parental leave policies, just to name a few. While the task ahead is daunting, sorry is the fool who underestimates her.

Looking Back on Past Annual Dinners 2016-18

Having started the countdown to Capital W’s Annual Dinner 2019: She Means Business, we decided to take this opportunity to look back on past themes and keynote speakers. 

2016: Be Inspired, Be Inspiring

‘Be Inspired, Be Inspiring’ encouraged students to draw inspiration from female business leaders’ experiences, which shaped their journeys to success and paved their paths to inspiring following generations.

Jacki Johnson, Group Executive, People, Performance and Reputation at IAG shared a glimpse into her career and how she used change as a force for good.

“The pace of change is so fast, and the world demands we adapt,” reminded Johnson as she emphasised the importance of embracing change. 

Her discussion of the challenges she faced in her career, inspired students to continually learn from every experience, both good and bad. 

Where is she now?

Johnson became Co-chairman of the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) in 2019. UNEP FI aims to help banks, insurers and investors embed environmental, social and governance considerations in their business strategies.

2017: 1000 Cracks in the Ceiling

‘1000 Cracks in the Ceiling’ drew attention to the ‘glass ceiling.’ The theme highlighted the need to continue empowering the next generation of female business leaders and shatter the ‘glass ceiling’.

Nicola Wakefield Evans, Independent Non-Executive Director of the Lend Lease Group is a global leader for gender diversity. Evans discussed the issue of the ‘glass ceiling’ that still existed in the workplace despite the significant progress that was made. Her speech encouraged female students to continue their efforts to shatter the glass ceiling.

Where is she now?

Evans became Chairman of 30% Club Australia in 2018. The 30% Club advocates for diversity across ASX Chairs and Directors by working with senior business leaders to increase their contributions towards building gender diverse boards.

2018: Our Voice is Our Future

‘Our Voice is Our future’ emphasised the need to take further individual action to achieve gender equality outcomes. There is still progress to be made for voices of women to be heard in the workplace and this can be achieved by further empowering young women.

Jen Dalitz, CEO of Women in Banking and Finance is an internationally recognised thought leader for diversity and inclusion. Drawing from her ten years of experience on Boards in the financial services, agricultural and education sectors, Dalitz shared her thoughts on women in leadership and working in male-dominated industries. Her speech reinforced the need for further pragmatic action to achieve a gender-balanced economy.

Where is she now?

Dalitz joined the UNSW Business School Alumni Advisory Board Member in 2018, where she is involved in providing valuable input to new program development and student and alumni engagement.
