Event Description

In January 2019, CFA Society France kicks off the new year with one of its flagship events series.
Join us to discuss how increased female representation at all levels of the corporate hierarchy can boost businesses' performances and how it can be best achieved. What's in store for you? 

You'll have a keynote speech by Alain Papiasse, Chairman of Corporate and Institutional Banking at BNP Paribas Group, a heated roundtable discussion with high-profile speakers, and a unique opportunity to test your own unconscious biases through augmented reality glasses from Accenture, during the cocktail. 

Want to know more about this subject ahead of the event? Read the flagship CFA Institute report, Diversity & Inclusion in Investment Management.
Our thanks to BNP Paribas Asset Management for courteously hosting the event.

Please note: this event will be held in French, though questions in English may be asked.
