We are delighted to be supporting Investment Week in the 2018 Women in Investment Awards.
Investment Week is launching their Women in Investment Awards 2018, in partnership with HSBC Global Asset Management. They had a phenomenal response to last year’s inaugural awards, with over 800 nominations received, but we believe 2018’s ceremony can be even bigger and better.
A big step forward has been taken over the last year in pushing for greater diversity in the investment industry but the consensus is there is still a long way to go, especially when it comes to narrowing the gender pay gap, pushing for more flexible working arrangements, and increasing the number of women in senior positions.
The awards not only honor the inspiring achievements of women across all parts of the investment industry, they also help shape the discussion around how we can improve diversity within the sector as we highlight some of the most forward-thinking initiatives in this area.
We are delighted to be collaborating with Investment Week to champion improving diversity within the investment sector and we believe these awards have a valuable part to play in drawing attention to this issue and demonstrating real change is starting to happen.
