Gender Lens Investing

  • Teaism Penn Quarter 400 8th Street nW Washington, DC 20004 (map)

Join us, on Tuesday, September 10th, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. for an event focused on women's history and gender lens investing! Come and learn why gender needs to play a role in our investment choices.

The World Economic Forum estimates it will take 208 years to achieve gender equality in the United States. As investors we can leverage our wealth to move the needle. If you do not take gender into account when making investment decisions, you risk leaving money on the table. This is true for both organizations as well as the economy at large.

The event will begin with a sunset walking tour, on which we will discover the hidden histories of the nation's First Ladies. A Tour of Her Own will lead us through downtown DC to highlight the often forgotten contributions of our First Ladies. You will learn about the women who aren't recognized by visible monuments, but whose contribution to history is deeply ingrained in our city and identities. Please note the walking tour will depart from the entrance of the JW Marriot at 1331 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004, AVENUE GRILL LEVEL. Tour will depart promptly at 6:00 p.m., so please be present for check-in by 5:45 p.m.

In the spirit of women, we will finish at the female owned business, Teaism in Penn Quarter for light hors d'oeuvres and a discussion on gender lens investing with leading investment experts. You will learn what gender lens investing is, the data explaining why it is important and how to incorporate it into investment decisions. Teaism discussion will begin at 7:30 p.m., attendees who have purchased tickets for the discussion only should arrive at Teaism by 7:30 p.m.
