Recognising the inspiring achievements of women in the investment industry in Italy

Following a hugely successful inaugural launch event in 2019, the Women In Investment Awards Italy is returning to Milan on 15th October 2020, to once again highlight the fantastic and multifaceted work being done by female financial professionals who are focused on the Italian market.

The past year has seen diversity issues continue to be at the forefront of discussions, whether because of continued regulatory pressures to reduce discrimination, because more women are being recognised for their ability to take on some of the most senior roles available, or simply because encouraging diversity of thought can produce better outcomes for provider firms and their clients alike.

Diversity is the ‘must have' rather than a ‘nice to have' for an industry seeking to remain fit to meet the demands of the 21st Century: A persistent pay gap not only counts as a negative score for those seeking to foster ESG commitments, but actually poses a threat to an industry that needs to attract new and younger talent with flexible working arrangements.

The Women In Investment Awards Italy 2020 not only honour the inspiring achievements of women across all parts of the investment industry, but also to help shape the discussion around how to improve diversity and highlight some of the most forward-thinking initiatives from both buy and sell sides.

InvestmentEurope believes that these Awards have a valuable part to play in drawing attention to the issue of diversity and demonstrating that real change is starting to happen.
