French Ambassador’s Residence in London, 11 Kensington Palace Gardens, London, W8 4QP
OMFIF, in partnership with Barings and Mazars, is launching the seventh annual Gender Balance Index, which tracks the presence of men and women in senior positions at central banks, sovereign funds and public pension funds.
For this year’s European launch, OMFIF convenes an evening reception at the French Ambassador’s Residence in London. We will present the exclusive findings from a global survey of central banks, investigating internal policies that support the hiring, retention and progression of women, alongside the latest index update. The index will highlight relevant changes in the senior ranks of institutions covered, and assesses how different countries and regions perform.
There will also be a panel discussion focusing on the need to promote diversity within and beyond the organisation. Topics will include organisational policies and practices for retaining talent in senior positions, and reforming corporate culture to ensure successful implementation of gender policy. Panelists will also discuss the issue of gender-influenced bias in investment and decision-making, and promoting gender balance at all stages of investment.
