INVESTING IN WOMEN IN WEALTH MANAGEMENT: TACKLING BARRIERS AND BIAS IN LEADERSHIP POSITIONS
Today, women across all industries are underrepresented and underpaid compared to men. It is a huge concern that women are still far from being afforded equal opportunities to take on leadership positions within financial services, and specifically within wealth management. Diversity in the workplace, in any form, can enable an optimal team culture while also increasing a business’ reputation. Senior leaders, by definition, are always looking to enhance their firm’s core competencies, particularly when it comes to how prospective employees perceive the culture. The key to long term success is simple: invest in your people and the workplace culture.
