The Wo+Men’s Leadership Centre (WLC) has established a collaborative network of relationships with corporations, academic partners and professional associations.
We are advising/involving corporate leaders and senior business executives and providing training and mentoring for those interested in gender diversity at all stages in their career.
The WLC is eager to expand its active engagements with interested companies, academic institutions and individuals.
We are proud to have partnered with Capital Group to offer the first mentorship programme in the UK, CAPtivate, for women interested in pursuing buy side (asset management) careers.
Capital Group is one of the largest investment management firms in the world with circa $1.4 trillion in assets under management globally.
The 30% Club was established in the UK in 2010, with a goal of achieving 30 per cent women on FTSE 100 boards by the end of 2015 in order to create a more balanced and diverse workforce. When the initiative was first launched the figure stood at just 12.5 per cent. Today it stands at 26 per cent. These significant results have been achieved by encouraging chairmen to appoint more women to boards, and by supporting businesses in implementing schemes to improve diversity at all levels within their organisation.
Cambridge Judge Business School and Level 20 are carrying out ground-breaking research of individuals’ career paths in the European private equity industry. The objective of the survey is to gather information from a very large number of industry participants, which will help us understand the unique career progressions of executives in the private industry and the various factors that shape this progression. The results of the survey will be analysed by the researchers at the School. Level 20 and Cambridge Judge will publish a report for the private equity industry later this year.
