“Gender diversity in financial decision-making is an essential competitive advantage.”
Join BSR to hear from seasoned executives and impact investors Patience Marime-Ball and Ruth Shaber, MD, authors of The XX Edge: Unlocking Higher Returns and Lower Risk. Their new book is sparking a movement to change the way in which financial capital is deployed by institutions—to invest with women as change agents and catalysts, not just as beneficiaries.
If you manage investments, allocate budget, or move capital in other ways individually or through your organization—you’ll want to understand the data and discover the financial power illuminated in The XX Edge, including:
- Gender-inclusive teams are 21 percent more likely to see outperformance in profitability relative to peers.
- Female CFOs deliver a 6 percent increase in profits and an 8 percent performance bump compared to overall performance under male predecessors.
- New companies with a female founder performed 63 percent better than those with all-male teams.
- Women-run hedge funds outperformed the average of larger hedge funds by a margin of 6 percent over a six-and-a-half-year period.
During this webinar, you will learn more about this new paradigm of gender-focused capital deployment that includes and goes beyond ESG. There will also be a Q&A with the speakers.
This webinar is hosted by the Center for Business and Social Justice, a new global center launched by BSR with support from the Tara Health Foundation, which works with companies who are committed to advancing social justice in close collaboration with partners from civil society, academia, government, worker representative groups, and the philanthropic sector.
