Women in Investment Management

Institutional Investor is pleased to announce Allocator Voices: Women in Investment Management, a celebration of distinguished women who are leaders and role models in their approach to their professional and personal lives.

Our mission is to foster a network of motivated and influential professionals who understand the unique position and associated challenges of being a woman in this industry.

Working together to offer support, experience, and a sense of community to one another, collectively contributing to the group’s overall professional and personal development; we hope this group will empower individuals and advance discussions around gender diversity, access and gender visibility. 

Inclusion, diversity of thought and diversity of experience will be featured through our carefully curated agenda of themes. We will be addressing topics which impact women today and we will formulate concrete steps as well as look for tangible outcomes.

It’s with great honor that we celebrate this movement of influential women who have the passion to leverage their voices to push the industry forward.

This year we are honoring
