Description: The headlines and studies are pervasive on the gap in women in alternatives despite the proven value to diversity. The goal of the Career Forum is to broaden the funnel of women into the alternatives industry and provide a setting where candidates can learn, engage, and network with industry veterans across the spectrum of careers. This will be the fourth time that the Women’s Association of Venture and Equity (WAVE) has hosted the event. Companies in attendance are expected to include private equity and venture capital firms, hedge funds, limited partners, investment banks, placement agents, and other firms within the alternatives industry.
