Why do diversity and inclusion matter in the investment profession? Research has shown that diversity improves business results for clients, teams, firms, and employees. Firm cultures with a more inclusive environment prove to be more innovative. An industry that hears and embraces many voices and perspectives will shape better investment outcomes and a stronger future for the investment profession.

Diversity and Inclusion 2018 will build on the success of our first three Women in Investment Management events and advance the conversation. It will offer a range of practical strategies to enhance investment careers for individuals and improve decision making at investment firms.
