Keeping diversity at the top of the private debt agenda

The forum will return in person in 2021 at a crucial time for the industry. Established in 2019, the Women in Private Debt Forum has driven forward the discussion around diversity in Private Debt.

Bringing together institutional investors, fund managers and the surrounding industry, the event provides a platform for men and women of all levels to build their network across alternative asset classes.

This year’s Women in Women in Private Debt Forum, part of the Women in Private Markets Summit will once again be co-located with the Women in Private Equity, Women in Infrastructure and Women in Real Estate Forums. All registered attendees will have access to the four forums.
