The challenge of diverse hiring in Investment Management - Mark Freed’s presentation

The challenge of diverse hiring in Investment Management - Mark Freed’s presentation

Katie.Dix / 04 Jan 2021

On the 25th November, Mark Freed spoke at the Instant Impact Event - Can you build a diverse business in a homogenous industry?

This is a a recording of Mark's presentation at the event.

Investment Management is traditionally a very homogenous industry and as a result, appears to face challenges when it comes to attracting a diverse pool of candidates. In this webinar, Instant Impact, will be focusing on the investment management industry specifically to get a better understanding of the barriers it needs to overcome in order to build businesses that reflect the society at large. For this webinar Instant Impact partnered with The Diversity Project. The Diversity Project is a cross-company initiative championing a more inclusive culture within the Savings and Investment profession. In their words "diversity is not only our social obligation, it’s a business imperative". The Diversity Project has invited two speakers to join us for this webinar - Schroders and E2W. 

We have supported women in their financial services careers and enabled Financial Institutions to gain the benefits of a more diverse workforce. Our community now boasts 10,000 women working in senior positions in financial services in London.
