A growing body of research shows that gender-diverse teams lead to improved corporate performance and better investor outcomes. Although the business case for gender diversity is well established, women are still underrepresented in the investment profession globally.

With a dynamic agenda and innovative presentations designed for women and men, employers and employees, and team leaders and members, this conference will address how firms can attract and retain the best talent, how leaders can get the most from their globally mixed teams, and how individuals can develop strategies to attain their long-term career goals
