Women in Asset Management
with Kellogg Dean Francesca Cornelli and Seema Hingorani, Founder of Girls Who Invest and Managing Director at Morgan Stanley
Tuesday, April 7, 2020
Time: 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
**Open presentation and reception for all Kellogg/NU Alumni**
Why are women such a minority in asset management? A lack of role models, long hours, and the perceived math gender gap all contribute. Join us for panels and peer discussions focusing on why the current disparity exists, why it's important to change the status quo, and steps we can take to increase opportunities for women in asset management. Speakers and panels are currently in formation - please stay tuned as we finalize our program.
Seema Hingorani is a currently an MD at Morgan Stanley, responsible for overseeing relationships with the firm's largest clients and creating a new training program to develop talent. She was formerly a chief investment officer of New York City's pension plans, overseeing $160 billion in assets. She founded the non-profit Girls Who Invest, dedicated to increasing the number of women in portfolio management and executive leadership in the asset management industry. She was most recently at SevenStep Capital, a venture that took stakes in minority- and women-led asset management firms that has since been wound down.
