We put the spotlight on Gender Lens investing. We invite special guest – Olga Miler to talk about this rapidly growing segment of sustainable investing. Gender Lens investing achieves an attractive financial return by investing in companies that promote gender equity or benefit women through products and services.
Why are we talking about this ?
It is well documented that companies with gender diversity in leadership positions outperform ones that do not. Investing in these companies makes financial sense.
SDG 5 calls for gender equality, we can go a long way to achieving this if people use their money intentionally to have a positive impact on the lives of women.
The Financial industry has typically been led by men and focused on men as the main investors. It is time to change this to ensure women are represented both as investors and recipients of funding to build the economy and improve the lives of women.
Let’s get together to understand, use and promote the power of gender lens investing.
