For her part, White describes herself – and her fellow female industry couterparts – as having to wear a number of hats. And women in the industry have to juggle the responsibilities inherent in running a business while also filling more traditional roles, according to White.

“For myself, I’m a business owner, I’m a mother, I’m a grandmother, I’m a wife; so I have all those duties on me and history dictates that we have all these things we have to do,” she said. “But saying that, myself personally, I push myself forward like right now I’m the vice-president of Mortgage Brokers Association of British Columbia.”

    During my long career in financing I have came across many women in the financial industry. There are many in senior positions and career oriented. The majority of the others especially in mortgage brokering enter the industry ill prepared as to what the industry requires. Many choose the financial industry as a part time job. It is like any other industry, you get back what you put in. I personally think a woman has an equal chance if they want to make it a career.
