Event:  NYSSA - Gender Diversity as a Profitable Corporate Strategy Webinar
Date & Time: March 23, 2017
5;30 PM - 8:00 PM EST
Location: Webinar
Description:  Research by the Peterson Institute for International Economics suggests that diversity of gender in a company’s workforce can actually boost profitability. Some of the possible reasons for this could be that successful companies may search for talent across a wider spectrum of people, or that they actively seek to diversify the skill sets and relationships of their employees.In this conference, we will feature leading practitioners in using factor models to invest based on gender diversity. These practitioners, from companies such as U.S. Trust, State Street Advisors and Morgan Stanley, will discuss their research, along with the statistical and quantitative support for their models. Additionally, the speakers will discuss the possible underlying qualitative reasons behind using gender diversity as a factor in their models. This event is a must for anyone interested in factor based investing, quantitative analysis, and the impact of gender diversity on corporate performance and investing returns.
