This event is co-located with the Infrastructure Investing New York Summit

The Infrastructure Investor New York Summit on December 2-3 will gather 200+ investors, fund managers, and policy makers to debate the trends shaping infra investment in North America and how to drive returns in a market flooded in interest, but difficult to navigate.

As we navigate the current global health crisis, we continue to offer the North American women in infrastructure community a platform to engage, learn, and network. The Forum will deliver the same first class dynamic content and peer networking opportunities through our virtual platform.

Join us on December 3 for a virtual experience exploring the current state of infrastructure investing in North America including renewables, clean energy, PPPs, infrastructure debt, ESG and more.
