About this webinar
SDG #5: Gender Equality in 2018: The Impact on Investments BrightTalk’s “SDG Webinar Series 2019” in partnership with #NSFMNextGen provides environmental, social and governance (ESG) research, insights and best practices from leading experts in industry and academia - across markets, asset classes, and the entire investment value chain. The 17 U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), a leading framework for sustainability issues, serve as our roadmap to identify, classify, measure and benchmark key issues. The SDG #5 webinar kick starts the series, and provides insights on diversity, female empowerment and inclusion strategies and tactics. Our expert speakers are leading researchers, corporate executives and product experts who will share their top down / bottom up perspectives on how diversity risks and opportunities can be identified, evaluated and benchmarked – at a corporate and at a portfolio level. Speakers from MSCI and Thomson Reuters will provide unique insights into how their analysis as well as best inclusion practices have changed the role of females both in the workforce and as investment decision makers. Meanwhile, SSGA will share research and product insights and share a “tone from the top” view on how the #FearlessGirl campaign has influenced companies across the globe to increase the gender diversity on their boards.
