Creating Growth Through Diversity

With a growing body of research showing that more diverse teams and inclusive workplaces directly correlates with stronger business outcomes, the issue of diversity in infrastructure continues to move up the agenda.

Once again, we will be bringing together over 600 delegates for open discussion on the latest issues facing the industry, as well as the opportunity to exchange ideas, initiate deals and forge new relationships.

This year’s event will again be co-located with the Women in Private Equity Forum, in addition to the Women in Private Debt Forum and the Women in Real Estate Forum, all registered attendees will have access to all events allowing you to build your network across alternative asset classes.
