Join us for the free webinar, “How gender diversity can drive greater returns in investing” on Monday, October 31st at 10AM EDT/ 2PM GMT.

Research demonstrates that companies with gender-diverse leadership have better business outcomes: they are more profitable, productive, innovative and have higher retention of staff. For the investment community, particularly impact investors who focus on companies in the emerging markets, there is an opportunity to drive impact by leading the conversation about gender diversity. In this webinar, representatives from Women’s World Banking Asset Management, LeapFrog Investments and Resolution Insurance Kenya discuss the experience of corporate gender diversity in the emerging markets, share trends and outcomes from institutions pioneering gender diversity in their markets and how impact or “profit-with-purpose” investing can drive both heightened social and commercial returns.
