Description

A growing set of investors are focusing on diversity & inclusion (D&I), such as gender-lens investment strategies & workplace equity policies and practices, to gain a performance advantage as well as driving change through their investments. Furthermore, new research and diversity data highlighting the benefits of diversity is driving a boom in innovative new investing vehicles across asset classes and greater shareholder engagement with public companies.

This forum will provide insight into how forward-thinking investors are incorporating diversity & inclusion themes into their ESG investment strategies using the latest tools.
