Minisode: Understanding Gender-Lens Investing
About This Episode
Gender-lens investing is one of the fastest-growing subsets of sustainable or impact investing—and should be of particular interest to you and your clients as you guide them toward their investment goals. Traditionally, gender-lens investing focused on investing in companies with a higher representation of women on their boards or in senior positions. Stopping at representation, however, may not be enough to achieve gender diversity and equality. Here to discuss the full scope of gender-lens investing is Anuradha (“Anu”) Gaggar.
