The importance of gender equality is getting a lot of attention, not least from the financial markets. While the financial sector may not be known for its gender diversity, financial markets can serve as an agent of change and have a big impact on closing the gender gap. An increasing number of issuers, investors and employers are paying attention to diversity matters. In this Nordic Capital Markets Forum’s webinar we will hear a topical key note speech from Copenhagen Business School professor Sara Louise Muhr on “Diversity, unconscious bias and inclusive leadership”, after which other expert speakers in the field will discuss developments in gender equality in European decision-making and legislation and how investors aim to make an impact on diversity.”
Confirmed speakers include:
- Sara Louise Muhr, Professor, Copenhagen Business School, Department of Organization
- Henrika Vikman, CEO at Nordea Investment Management AB
- Päivi Jokinen, Chair of European Women on Boards
This seminar will take place on Friday 1 October 2021 and will be held as a virtual/on-line event. The seminar will start at 13.00 and finish at 15.00 CEST.
