Women in Investing Conference

Investment professionals and women MBA students from top schools gather to explore careers in asset management.

November 17-18, 2016

The Parker Center's Women in Investing Conference (WIN) was founded in 2010 by Lakshmi Bhojraj, '95, MBA '01, Breazzano Family Executive Director of the Parker Center for Investment Research, to educate women about the rewarding career opportunities available to them in investment management—a field in which women are vastly underrepresented.  It is a forum for full-time MBA women from top business schools around the country to gather and:

  • Network
  • Hear perspectives on investment careers and related topics
  • Learn from distinguished women and men in the industry
  • Showcase their stock-picking skills in front of industry veterans

More than 65 representatives from top-tier investment management firms and 70 female MBA students from top business schools are expected to attend.

The WIN Conference was a wonderful experience that I am glad I was able to have. Many women who succeed in the investment industry attended the event to share their experiences. Additionally, the feedback from the stock pitch judges was extremely helpful for all of us.

The WIN conference provided us with direct access to the HR representatives and industry leaders from top buy-side companies and a platform to showcase our stock pitch skills and receive constructive feedback. It was well worth spending the two days in Boston to explore opportunities in the investment management industry. You may also be invited to some exclusive networking events from those companies while you were at Boston or after the conference.
