Driving the discussion on diversity, inclusion, and culture
The conversation about diversity and inclusion in Asia is shifting. An increasing number of private equity firms are beginning to understand that having diverse teams can lead to better investment decisions and returns and should therefore be a business imperative.
AVCJ’s Women in Private Equity Forum returns for the second year to Hong Kong, bringing together over 120 private equity professionals and senior advisors from Asia for a one-day intensive dive into the main drivers and issues surrounding diversity and inclusion in the private equity industry.
The conference aims to continue to lead the discussion in Asia on the challenges that the asset class faces when it comes to recruiting and retaining diverse teams, and to help provide solutions to close the gap.
Reasons to attend:
Discover the best practices and strategies that firms are adopting to increase diversity and inclusion in the asset class in Asia and globally
Hear from top women and male GPs, VC investors, and entrepreneurs on what it takes to build an inclusive pipeline in the region
Learn about the importance of maintaining a positive corporate culture within a company
Understand how LPs can influence the behaviour of GPs when it comes to diversity issues
Participate in practical roundtable discussions, case studies, and data presentations
Gain insights into how PE firms can lay out the foundation for the success of women beyond the associate level
“Kudos to AVCJ for
leading this discussion in Asia, and for including both men and women
across the entire private markets. Lots of sharing and great ideas to improve
our organisations. We mark our calendars for next year's AVCJ Women in Asian Private Equity Forum.”
Juan Delgado-Moreira, Vice Chairman, HAMILTON LANE
“Very happy to participate in AVCJ’s inaugural Women in Asian Private
Equity Forum. Asia is behind other regions in terms of gender equality in
numerous aspects and such initiatives to discuss issues and possible solutions
will bring us closer to closing the gap.”
