In recognition of International Women's Day and the upcoming The Open Door: Roles of Women in Securities Regulation Gallery, listen to the remembrances of women who have made and continue to make an impact on the regulation of the capital markets, including:
Jill Considine, past Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, and former New York State Superintendent of Banks:
"[9/11] changed [DTCC] completely. I looked and realized we had the backup systems, but the backup system was located in Brooklyn. We were critical. It's not that we were too big to fail - we were something that could not fail."
"Lots of people weren't thrilled to have this woman jettisoned in to be a director of a British bank. But, the good story is that the Chinese weren't like that. In the Chinese family, the men would make the money, and the women run it; it wasn't such a big step to go from talking to the mother to talking to me."
Grace Vogel, Executive Vice President, Member Regulation, FINRA
"I think I make a much better regulator having worked at two firms, and I think that it would be great for every regulator to have spent some time at a member firm to understand how things are done and to see what happens in real life, to have a sense as to what goes on. It gives you a very different perspective."
