InvestmentEurope, along with its sister publications Investment Week, Professional Adviser, Professional Pensions and Retirement Planner, have collaborated to launch the Women In Investment Festival 2020, taking place on 3 March next year, with the objective of seeking answers to questions such as what is/not working regarding recruitment, promotion and retention of top talent, what does an 'inclusive' work culture look like, and how can the financial industry shift thinking around diversity and inclusion from being just another business case to becoming a strategic imperative.
Designed to offer multiple streams covering Next Generation, Insipirational Leaders and Industry Innovation, the event seeks to highlight the benefits that flow from diversity, not just by highlighting the opportunities for women, but to identify examples of best practice that involve both men and women.
The event programme will seek to foster a network effect of sharing such knowledge, with participating investment firms sharing insight into their successes challenging the status quo.
Delegates can also tap into insights on personal wellbeing (nutrition, yoga) and mentoring as tools to help advance their professional goals, in addition to plugging into the network effect that the Festival is seeking to engender among those (women) attending.
Taking place at The Brewery in the City, the event has been developed in partnership with HSBC Global Asset Management, with event partners the CFA Society United Kingdom, and PIMFA, and sustainability partners Business Green and Ecosphere+.
