The annual AVCJ Women in Asian Private Equity will return to Hong Kong on 10 December 2019 following a successful launch event that bought together over 120 private equity professionals including 40 LPs.

This year’s forum will continue to drive the conversation forward and focus on the issues and challenges the private equity and venture capital industry faces in areas such as tackling gender equality, retaining and promoting female investment professionals and the benefits of a diverse workforce on financial returns, all from the perspective of regional and global GPs, LPs and industry experts.

Make sure that you contribute to a day of high-level industry debates surrounding the diversity agenda and help to ensure that the private equity and venture capital ecosystem in Asia continues to advance in this area.
