Crowe & Dunlevy Launches “Women in Banking, Fintech & Finance” Initiative

Firm Creates Financial Services Industry-Focused Forum for Women

OKLAHOMA CITY – Crowe & Dunlevy is pleased to announce, on International Women’s Day, the creation of “Women in Banking, Fintech & Finance” (WBFF), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit providing educational, networking and mentoring opportunities for women in the banking, fintech and finance industries. The initiative serves as a forum for women at all levels of the financial services industry to share, learn and grow from each other’s experiences during events designed exclusively for women. The forum is strategically intended for women in financial services in Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Arkansas.

The brainchild of Crowe & Dunlevy’s Tulsa female attorneys, the forum will host bi-annual receptions in Tulsa featuring topical industry presentations and leadership panel discussions.

“Crowe & Dunlevy created Women in Banking, Fintech & Finance to provide women in financial services a platform to hold discussions around industry trends, to share keys to successful leadership and advancement, and to address everyday issues confronting women in the workplace,” says Crowe & Dunlevy’s Stacy Schauvliege, a shareholder and director in the firm’s Tulsa office and a member of the firm’s Banking & Financial Institutions practice.

The forum’s inaugural panel discussion event will take place on May 2, 2024, at Tulsa Country Club and will include the following panelists:

The panel will be moderated by Crowe & Dunlevy shareholder/director Stacy A. Schauvliege.

“Crowe & Dunlevy recognizes the powerful influence and potential of women in the financial services profession. We also recognize the many challenges they face on a daily basis,” says shareholder/director Kayci Hughes, a member of the firm’s Executive Committee and a commercial litigator in the firm’s Tulsa office. “We hope attendees will learn how to set themselves apart from the competition, motivate themselves to deal with stress and change, form stronger teams, embrace the evolution of the finance industry, inspire accountability and more,” continues Hughes.

“Don’t miss this opportunity for invaluable networking and important industry insights. Not only will you benefit both personally and professionally, but we hope you’ll leave our events motivated, energized and inspired,” says Schauvliege.

If women in the three financial services industries would like to be included in invitations for upcoming events and communications, please contact Stacy Schauvliege at or 918.592.9820 or Kayci Hughes at or 918.592.9846.
