CFA Society - "The High Cost of Gender Imbalance in Finance"

This online discussion will look at some of the following questions:

Would it be good for the end investor if women represented more of the industry? What is the business case for gender diversity? What are the obstacles? How do we close the gender gap in finance? What does the research tell us about decision-making and performance of firms with more diversity? What does diversity mean for corporate boards and what has been the performance of companies with more diversity on their boards and in leadership positions? What sectors are women going to instead of finance?  Has this changed over time? Are there areas where women may have an advantage in working with clients, for example in private wealth, or women investors working with women clients?
