EDUCATION SESSION #1039
Women Take the Trading Floor
Women are pursuing the action on the trading floor in increasing numbers. What is driving them to join historically male-dominated teams? How might more women traders be good news for business? Is there a way to quantify this impact?

Learn which areas of trading are (and which are not) adding women to their ranks. Consider the role that technology plays beckoning women to the trading floor and what the future might bring.

Traders and portfolio managers in both buy-side and sell-side roles are especially invited to participate in this discussion of how the environment is shifting and what that means for you and other women in trading.

Bring your questions and share your perspectives with colleagues and peers, as you network over drinks following the discussion.
