Guest Lecture: “Fearless Girls?!” „Women’s careers in asset management“
28. October 2019, 1:45 pm - 3:15 pm
We are pleased to hold our first guest lecture at the University of Mannheim. Advanced Bachelor and Master students are welcome to join us. Find out what “Fearless Girls?!” „Women’s careers in asset management“ are all about.
In 2017, we conducted the widely regarded study “Fearless Girls?! Reasons for the low fraction of women in the financial industry” headed by Prof. Dr. Niessen-Ruenzi and Professor Dr. Ruenzi of the University of Mannheim.
One of our learnings were that female students are less likely to consider a career in asset management than their male counterparts are. The guest lecture will highlight reasons for these differences and discuss what is holding women back from the financial industry.
– Are there gender differences in personal values that make the financial industry less attractive to women?
– What is the industry like, how can organizational structures be changed to make the industry more attractive to female talent?
Our career network “Fondsfrauen” wants to encourage female students to take a closer look at our industry and learn what great opportunities in line with their professional and personal values await them. Check our website for more information now.
Meet and hear from the founders of Fondsfrauen what our study on women in asset management is all about. Find out what roles may be of interest to you and how our career network can help you take the first steps in this business. A female portfolio manager will be there to talk about her job and answer your questions.
