Join us the morning of October 17th for our seventh annual Invest in Women Symposium in New York City.
We believe that understanding the competitive advantage of inclusive cultures and purpose-driven businesses is a crucial element in the transition to a more sustainable and equitable economy, which is why this year our theme will be “Uncovering the value of corporate culture.”
We’re excited to share that CEO & Founder of Ellevest, Sallie Krawcheck, will return to this year’s event in a candid conversation on women, investing and our economy. She will be joined by several other industry leaders and experts on the topic of gender and diversity-focused investing.
A welcome reception will be held the evening before, on Monday, October 16th at the Terrazzo Terrace & Lounge at the Park Terrace Hotel on Bryant Park.
