Two nights ago, I had the pleasure of attending Opportunity Now’s 2011 Awards Gala Dinner at the Brewery, Chiswell St London. Over 500 guests came together to recognise excellent practices within organisations that are creating equal, diverse and inclusive workplaces, with a particular focus on gender.
“It’s the female trend and it’s the sustainability trends that are going to create some of the most interesting investment opportunities in the years to come. The whole thing about the female trend is not about women being better than men. It is actually about women being different from men—bringing different values and different ways to the table. So what do you get? You get better decision-making and you get less herd behavior and both of those things hit your bottom line with very positive results.” Holla Tomasdittor, co-founder of Audur Capital.
