Registrations are closed for this event

While in the last half century, progress has been achieved in the fight for gender equality and the right of every woman and girl to a life free from discrimination, we are witnessing attempts to question and even reverse the hard-won gains. In this context, RDCC plans to address the topic of how investment funds deploy their capital and how the process can become more gender equal.

With 12 speakers, one-to-one interviews, case studies, panel discussions and Q&A sessions, we are sure you will be inspired to make a difference in your own organisation.

Registration before the event is required and only registered participants will be guaranteed a space. Further information will be sent out closer to the event.
