RI SURVEY: Women in Finance 2023

Ahead of International Women's Day, we want to hear your thoughts on what can be done to address gender inequality within the finance and investment industry.

International Women’s Day takes place next month and to mark the event we are planning a week of coverage focusing on gender in the investment industry.

In preparation for this, we would like to ask you, our readers, a few questions.

We doubt this is the first time you’ve heard about a lack of gender diversity in the finance sector, and it’s also unlikely to be the last. Despite countless initiatives, policies and networks, the industry is still failing to move the needle on female representation.

We want to hear about why people think representation is still so low and what the industry could do to improve this and increase gender inclusivity.

To get a better understanding of the situation, we’d like to ask you to take part in a survey to share your experiences and thoughts on this topic. We appreciate that this is a sensitive issue, so the survey is fully anonymised.

The more responses we get, the more valuable the data will be, so please feel free to share it. The survey is not behind RI’s paywall.

Finally, if you would like to talk about any of these issues in more detail, on the record or on background, please email us at edit@responsible-investor.com. All communications are confidential.

We will publish the results of the survey on International Women’s Day, Wednesday 8 March, as part of our Gender Week campaign.
