Women in Finance Webinar

Gender diversity in financial services

< return to all events

Speaker(s):
Shelley Doorey-Williams, Roxana Mohammadian-Molina and Emma Wheeler

Did you know that?

  • 40% of global wealth is held by women
  • 40% of entrepreneurs around the world are women
  • female entrepreneurs are 30% less likely to have access to sufficient funding for their businesses compared to men.

According to Harvard Business School, venture capital firms that increased female partner hires by 10% saw an average 1.5% rise in annual fund returns.
We need more women in financial services but how can we bring them into the industry?

To explore this issue, we're holding a Women in Finance webinar on Wednesday 1 July with a panel of experts who are all leaders in their respective roles in financial services.

We'll be discussing:
  • what the sector is doing to encourage more female talent
  • the impact of gender lens investing as a specific strategy
  • the growth in wealth amongst women
  • the different routes into the profession and how to manage your career
  • how LIBF is supporting widening participation.
