作为她研究的一部分, Dyer interviewed 10 women who currently work as finance executives within different areas of the industry from across the United States. Her presentation also contained a review of available academic literature. 文献综述发现, though underrepresented in the industry, women in finance appear to be more competent and adept at managing finances, 也更准确, 更自律, 竞争力较弱, and more risk-averse when it comes to their work in the field.

Through the conversations with women currently working in finance, Dyer found the greatest need was for more successful role models for young women to emulate. 另外, there was a need to destigmatize and demystify finance, as well as to provide young women with opportunities for internships in finance while they are in school.

“Women in the finance industry create a needed balance for corporations that can improve firm outcomes,” Dyer said following the conference that concluded earlier this month. “Even with this knowledge, women are still underrepresented in the finance industry. We hope that the information from this study can be used to encourage women from high school through college to consider finance as a major and a career.”
